The first step to configuring a tenant is to name the new tenant and add it to vRealize Automation and create the tenant-specific access URL.


Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a system administrator.


  1. Select Administration > Tenants.
  2. Click the New icon (Add).
  3. Enter a name in the Name text box.
  4. (Optional) Enter a description in the Description text box.
  5. Enter a unique identifier for the tenant in the URL Name text box.

    This URL token is used to append a tenant-specific identifier to the vRealize Automation console URL.

    For example, enter mytenant to create the URL


    The tenant URL must use lowercase characters only in vRealize Automation 7.0 and 7.1.

  6. (Optional) Enter an email address in the Contact Email text box.
  7. Click Submit and Next.
