Create an Azure reservation for a specific business group to grant users in that group the ability to request Azure virtual machines on a specified compute resource.

Before you begin

  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a fabric administrator.

  • Verify that a tenant administrator created at least one business group.

  • Configure network profile information.

  • Verify that you have access to any required Azure resources.

  • Verify that any required key pairs exist. See Configuring vRealize Automation for information about key pairs.

  • Obtain a valid Azure Subscription ID, and this ID must match the one used with the applicable Azure endpoint. If you use multiple Azure subscriptions, you must create a reservation for each subscription.

About this task

Note:

Ignore the Alerts tab when creating an Azure reservation as it does not apply. After you create a reservation, you cannot change the business group associations. Also, unlike other machine types, there is no direct link between an Azure reservation and a blueprint.

You can control the display of reservations when adding, editing, or deleting by using the Filter By Category option on the Reservations page. Note that test agent reservations do not appear in the reservations list when filtering by category.
