You can create a resource action to allow the consumers of the XaaS create a user blueprint to change the password of the user after they provision the user.


  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as an XaaS architect.

  • Verify that you create a custom resource action that supports provisioning Active Directory users. See Create a Test User as a Custom Resource.


  1. Select Design > XaaS > Resource Actions.
  2. Click the New icon (Add).
  3. Navigate to Orchestrator > Library > Microsoft > Active Directory > User in the vRealize Orchestrator workflow library, and select the Change a user password workflow.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Select Test User from the Resource type drop-down menu.
    This selection is the custom resource you created previously.
  6. Select user from the Input parameter drop-down menu.
  7. Click Next.
  8. Change the name of the resource action to Change the password of the Test User, and leave the description as it appears on the Details tab.
  9. Click Next.
  10. (Optional) Leave the form as is.
  11. Click Finish.
  12. On the Resource Actions page, select the Change the password of the Test User row and click Publish.


You created a resource action for changing the password of a user, and you made it available to add to an entitlement.
