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


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.


  1. On the My Services Dashboard, click Content Management.
  2. Under Endpoints, click NEW ENDPOINT
  3. Click 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 any 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.
      With tags, you can 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.

      While adding an endpoint for a particular tenant, tenant based FQDN has to be used as a server. However, for a system based domain, user FQDN without a tenant should be used.

      IP addresses are not supported while adding vRealize Automation 8.x endpoints.

    5. Enter a tenant name, user name, and password to use to access this content endpoint.
    6. Select an external or embedded vRealize Orchestrator endpoint to associate from the vRO Server Endpoint drop-down menu.
    When selecting a user account for exporting or importing content into vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, 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. For more information on policies, refer to the policy table provided in Working with Endpoints.
  8. Verify that the content endpoint details are correct, and click Submit.
