You can suspend a scheduled workflow run. You can also resume suspended scheduled tasks.


Verify that you have configured at least one Orchestrator server to work with the same Single Sign-On instance to which both the vCenter Server and vSphere Web Client are pointing. You must also ensure that Orchestrator is registered as a vCenter Server extension. You register Orchestrator as a vCenter Server extension when you specify a user (by providing the user name and password), who has the privileges to manage vCenter Server extensions. For more information, see Installing and Configuring VMware vCenter Orchestrator.

  2. Click Scheduled workflows.

    A list of the scheduled workflows appears.

  3. Right-click a workflow and select Suspend.
