As of 7.0, vRealize Automation price profiles are no longer supported and are not migrated into the target deployment during upgrade. However, you can use the enhanced integration with vRealize Business for Cloud to manage your vRealize Automation resource expenses.

vRealize Business for Cloud is now tightly integrated with vRealize Automation and supports the following enhanced pricing features.

  • Unified location in vRealize Business for Cloud to define flexible pricing policies for:

    • Infrastructure resource, machine, and application blueprints

    • Provisioned virtual machines in vRealize Automation for supported endpoints such as vCenter Server, vCloud Director, Amazon Web Services, Azure, and OpenStack.

    • Any operational price, one time price, and price on custom properties of provisioned virtual machines

    • Deployments, which include the price of virtual machines within the deployments

  • Role-based showback reports in vRealize Business for Cloud

  • Fully leverage new features in vRealize Business for Cloud

Before you upgrade, you can export your existing expense reports from your source vRealize Automation instance for reference. After you finish your upgrade, you can install and configure vRealize Business for Cloud to handle pricing.

Note:

vRealize Automation 7.3 is compatible only with vRealize Business for Cloud 7.3 and later.
