The vRealize Automation console enables administrators to configure business- and user-specific policies through a web-based user interface without writing any code.

These business policies include entitlements and approvals for the service catalog, resource reservation policies for infrastructure, and many others.

For information about customization tasks that you can perform through the vRealize Automation console, see Designing Blueprints.

Using custom properties, machine blueprint authors can define additional machine properties or override their standard attributes for a variety of purposes.

For details about the use and configuration of custom properties, see Managing the Service Catalog.
