Add a content endpoint to an environment to capture, test, deploy or check-in a content package.

Prerequisites

Verify that you have added at least one vRealize Automation endpoint.

Note:

If the vRealize Orchestrator is embedded then there is no need of a separate instance of vRealize Orchestrator endpoint. vRealize Orchestrator endpoint creation is needed only if you are using an external vRealize Orchestrator endpoint for vRealize Automation.

Procedure

  1. Under Content Management, click Endpoints.
  2. Click NEW ENDPOINT.
  3. Select Automation.
  4. Enter the information for the vRealize Automation content endpoint.
    1. In the Name field, enter a unique name for the endpoint.

      This can be a server name or a friendly name.

    2. Select the product version of the endpoint from the Endpoint Version drop-down menu.
    3. In the Tags field, enter tags associated with the endpoint.

      Using tags allows you to deploy content to multiple endpoints at the same time. When you deploy content, you can select a tag instead of individual content endpoint names, and the content deploys to all endpoints that have that tag.

      To add multiple tags, press Enter after you enter each tag.

    4. In the Sever FQDN/IP field, enter the fully-qualified server name, IP address, or host name for the content endpoint server.
    5. Enter a tenant name, user name, and password to use to access this content endpoint.
    6. Select a vRealize Orchestrator endpoint to associate with this endpoint from the vRO Server Endpoint drop-down menu.

    When selecting a user account for exporting or importing content into vRSLCM, ensure that the account has ALL Roles selected. The Secure Export Consumer role allows LCM to export passwords which can be imported into alternate vRA endpoints.

  5. Press TEST CONNECTION to test the connection to the content endpoint.

    If the connection test fails, verify that the information you entered for the content endpoint is correct and try again.

  6. Click Next.
  7. Select the appropriate policies for the content endpoint, and click Next.
