VMware provides a library of workflow activities with vRealize Automation Designer for use in customizing workflows.


The CDK is deprecated beginning with vRealize Automation 7.0. You can use the vRealize Orchestrator workflows to address use cases that you previously addressed with CDK.

Five categories of Windows Workflow Foundation activities are also included in vRealize Automation Designer, including Control Flow, Flowchart, Primitives, Collection and Error Handling.

This section provides a reference to the IaaS workflow activities included with vRealize Automation Designer in the DynamicOps.Repository.Activities and DynamicOps.Cdk.Activities namespaces. Activities related to calling vRealize Orchestrator workflows are described in Using vRealize Orchestrator Workflow Activities.


In the IaaS activity library, the Model Manager is referred to as the repository.
