You can manually run a scheduled workflow before it runs automatically.

When you run a workflow manually, the schedule is not affected. After the manual run, the workflow runs again at the scheduled time.


Verify that you have configured at least one Orchestrator server to work with the same Single Sign-On instance to which vCenter Server is 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 account that has the necessary privileges to manage vCenter Serverextensions. For more information, see Installing and Configuring VMware vRealize Orchestrator.
