You must migrate all custom groups from the source environment to the VMware Identity Manager (vIDM) in the target deployment.

Complete this procedure to migrate custom groups.



  1. Start an SSH session on the vRealize Automation virtual appliance.
  2. At the command prompt, log in as root with the password you created when you installed the vRealize Automation virtual appliance.
  3. Run this command.

    vcac-config migrate-custom-groups

    • This message appears when migration completes: The migration of Custom Groups completed successfully!

    • This message appears if no custom groups are in your source environment: No Custom Groups were found in vRA database. Migration process will be skipped.


    If custom group migration fails, view the log file at /var/log/vmware/vcac/vcac-config.log for details.
