After you activate VMware Aria Automation Free Tier, you can use Automation Service Broker to provision and manage your cloud and IT resources. Automation Assembler administrators can also use Automation Assembler to set up the provisioning infrastructure, create projects, and create templates for DevOps users.

The VMware Aria Automation Free Tier activation process sets up the appropriate projects and related infrastructure for users to work with Supervisors and traditional clusters. These configurations include a cloud account, default projects, and a cloud template for Supervisors. You can create additional projects, cloud accounts, and other necessary resources. While VMware Aria Automation Free Tier provides access to all the VMware Aria Automation functionalities, there are some limits on the number of infrastructure resources that you can create. For detailed information about these limits, see Free Tier Limitations.


Ensure that VMware Aria Automation Free Tier is activated for the Organization. See Activate VMware Aria Automation Free Tier.
