If you are using vRealize Automation workflows to call vRealize Orchestrator workflows, you must configure the vRealize Orchestrator instance or server as an endpoint.

For information about adding a vRealize Orchestrator endpoint, see Create a vRealize Orchestrator Endpoint.

You can associate a vRealize Orchestrator endpoint with a machine blueprint to make sure that all of the vRealize Orchestrator workflows for machines provisioned from that blueprint are run using that endpoint.

vRealize Automation by default includes an embedded vRealize Orchestrator instance. It is recommended that you use this as your vRealize Orchestrator endpoint for running vRealize Automation workflows in a test environment or creating a proof of concept.

It is also recommended that you use this vRealize Orchestrator endpoint for running vRealize Automation workflows in a production environment.

The vRealize Orchestrator plug-in is automatically installed with vRealize Orchestrator 7.1 and later. There is no separate vRealize Orchestrator plug-in to install.
