Items that you provisioned using vRealize Automation might have actions that you can run on those items. The configured actions that are available for a provisioned items appear in the Actions menu for the selected resource on the Items tab.

The actions that are available for a provisioned resource depend on the type of resource, how the action was configured and made available for provisioned items, and the operational state of the item.

If the item was provisioned using an IaaS machine blueprint, the list of available actions is determined by what was selected on the Actions tab when the blueprint was created, and then by what is applicable based on machine type or state.

If the item was provisioned using an Advanced Services blueprint, the resource actions must be created, published, and entitled in the same service that is used to provision the item. The list of available actions is determined by the item type and the current state of the item.

The available actions for an item that was provisioned as an IaaS machine might also include Advanced Services resource actions if the actions are mapped to the item.
