You can create a vRealize Orchestrator endpoint to connect to a vRealize Orchestrator server.

About this task

You can configure multiple endpoints to connect to different vRealize Orchestrator servers, but you must configure a priority for each endpoint.

When executing vRealize Orchestrator workflows, vRealize Automation tries the highest priority vRealize Orchestrator endpoint first. If that endpoint is not reachable, then it proceeds to try the next highest priority endpoint until a vRealize Orchestrator server is available to run the workflow.

Prerequisites

  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as an IaaS administrator.

Procedure

  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Endpoints.
  2. Select New > Orchestration > vRealize Orchestrator.
  3. Enter a name and, optionally, a description.
  4. Enter a URL with the fully qualified name or IP address of the vRealize Orchestrator server and the vRealize Orchestrator port number.

    The transport protocol must be HTTPS. If no port is specified, the default port 443 is used.

    To use the default vRealize Orchestrator instance embedded in the vRealize Automation appliance, type https://vrealize-automation-appliance-hostname:443/vco.

  5. Provide your vRealize Orchestrator credentials in the User name and Password text boxes to connect to the vRealize Orchestrator endpoint.

    The credentials you use should have Execute permissions for any vRealize Orchestrator workflows to call from IaaS.

    To use the default vRealize Orchestrator instance embedded in the vRealize Automation appliance, the user name is administrator@vsphere.local and the password is the administrator password that was specified when configuring SSO.

  6. Enter an integer greater than or equal to 1 in Priority text box.

    A lower value specifies a higher priority.

  7. (Optional) : Click Properties and add supplied custom properties, property groups, or your own property definitions for the endpoint.
  8. Click OK.
