PSC version 6.0, the vSphere SSO component introduced in vSphere 6.0, allows you to specify a tenant name other than vsphere.local. vRealize Automation requires vsphere.local as the name of the default tenant because you cannot enter the name of the tenant on the SSO tab of the management console when you configure vRealize Automation.
