Workflow Name

Description

Add a vRA host

Adds a vRealize Automation host to the plug-in inventory. For tenant management and administration tasks, you can use the Inventory view to run workflows on each tenant. To use the full function of the plug-in for a tenant, create a dedicated vRealize Automation host for each tenant.

Add a vRA host using component registry

Adds a vRealize Automation host to the plug-in inventory with a Per User Session connection. You must be logged in to the Orchestrator client with the credentials of the vRealize Automation system administrator.

To use this function with an external vRealize Orchestrator server, you must register the Orchestrator server in the vRealize Automation component registry.

Add the IaaS host of a vRA host

Adds the IaaS host of the selected vRealize Automation host to the plug-in inventory.

Remove a vRA host

Removes a vRealize Automation host from the plug-in inventory.

Update a vRA host

Updates a vRealize Automation host in the plug-in inventory.

Validate a vRA host

Validates the vRealize Automation host and the connection to it.

Note:

If your vRealize Orchestrator server is registered in the vRealize Automation component registry, a vRealize Automation host with the name Default is automatically added. The Default host is using Per User Session connection to the default tenant. The embedded Orchestrator server in the vRealize Automation installation is registered in the vRealize Automation component registry by default.

vRealize Automation IaaS Hosts

You can access these workflows from the Workflows view of the Orchestrator client, in the Infrastructure Administration > Configuration subdirectory of the plug-in library.

The embedded vRealize Orchestrator server in the vRealize Automation installation is registered in the vRealize Automation component registry by default.
