By using the Orchestrator view in the vSphere Web Client, you can perform administration tasks such as running and scheduling workflows, and viewing the list of available workflows.

From the Orchestrator view in the vSphere Web Client, you can perform the following tasks:

  • Select a default Orchestrator server.

  • Work with workflows. Working with workflows includes the following tasks:

    • Associating workflows with specific vSphere inventory objects such as virtual machines, ESXi hosts, clusters, resource pools, and folders.

    • Exporting and importing existing associations of workflows with vSphere inventory objects for backup purposes or to import them to another vSphere Web Client instance.

    • Editing associations of workflows with vSphere inventory objects such as virtual machines, ESXi hosts, clusters, resource pools, folders, and others.

    • Viewing information about workflow runs and about workflows waiting for user intervention.

    • Running and scheduling workflows on vSphere objects.

To run workflows on specific vSphere inventory objects, you must select a default Orchestrator server. Associate the workflows of the default Orchestrator server with the vSphere inventory objects that you want to manage.
