If you add an embedded vRealize Orchestrator endpoint to a vRealize Automation 6.x deployment and upgrade to vRealize Automation 7.0, you must make changes to the vRealize Orchestrator endpoint URL to restore the connection.

About this task

In vRealize Automation 6.x, the URL for the embedded vRealize Orchestrator is https://hostname:8281/vco. In vRealize Automation 7.0, the URL for an embedded vRealize Orchestrator changes to https://hostname/vco. Because the 6.x URL does not change when you upgrade to 7.0, the system cannot find vRealize Orchestrator. Perform the following steps to fix this problem.


  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as an IaaS administrator.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Endpoints.
  2. On the Endpoints page, point to the vRealize Orchestrator endpoint, and select Edit from the context menu.
  3. In the Address text box, edit the vRealize Orchestrator endpoint URL to remove :8281.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Manually start data collection on the vRealize Orchestrator, and verify that the collection is successful.
