Design Justification

Design Implication


Use vRealize Automation authentication with the embedded vRealize Orchestrator.

vRealize Automation authentication is the only authentication method available.



Configure vRealize Orchestrator to use the vRealize Automation customer tenant (rainpole) for authentication.

The vRealize Automation default tenant users are only administrative users. By connecting to the customer tenant, workflows running on vRealize Orchestrator can run with end-user permissions.

End users who run vRealize Orchestrator workflows are required to have permissions on the vRealize Orchestrator server.

Some plug-ins might not support vRealize Automation authentication.
