The subscription options determine when a workflow runs based on event messages in vRealize Automation. Use the options to manage your subscriptions.

A subscription represents a user's intent to subscribe to events for a given event topic and to run a workflow when an event for the topic is received that matches defined conditions.

You must be a tenant administrator to create a workflow subscription. All workflow subscriptions are specific to your tenant.

To manage your workflow subscriptions, select Administration > Events > Subscriptions.
