You can use the requests workflows to request catalog items and resource actions, and to complete or cancel work items.

A work item requires user input or action. For example, a workflow interaction, approval action, or responding to a reclamation request.

You can access these workflows from the Workflows view of the vRealize Orchestrator client, in the Requests subdirectory of the plug-in library.

Workflow

Description

Cancel a work item

Cancels an active work item. You can use this workflow only if you are a system administrator.

Complete a work item

Finishes a work item based on provided user input.

Request a catalog item

Requests a catalog item for the user running the workflow.

If you need a workflow to request a composite blueprint, use the Request a catalog with provisioning request workflow.

Request a catalog item on behalf of a user

Sends a request for a catalog item on behalf of a user. You can use this workflow only for catalog items entitled to both you and the user on behalf of whom you are sending the request.

Request a catalog with provisioning request

Requests a composite blueprint as a catalog item for the user running the workflow. If you are providing customized input to the request, you must customize the workflow. Use this workflow for composite blueprints.

Request a resource action

Requests a resource action for a catalog item owned by the user running the workflow.

Request a resource action on behalf of a user

Sends a request for a resource action on behalf of a user. You can use this workflow only for resource actions entitled to both you and the user on behalf of whom you are sending the request.

Request a resource action with a request template

Requests a resource action that includes complex parameters. The best practice is to duplicate the workflow and then customize it for the action. You can use the workflow to pass complex parameters or hidden parameters that you do not want to appear on the request form. One of the primary applications of this workflow is to customize the IaaS reconfigure virtual machine action.
