As the tenant administrator for the development and quality engineering business group, you want to apply strict governance to catalog item requests. Before your users can provision the CentOS with MySQL catalog item, you want your vSphere virtual infrastructure administrator to approve the machine request and you want your software manager to approve the software request.
You create and apply one approval policy for the vSphere CentOS with MySQL service catalog request to require approval for the machine by a vSphere virtual infrastructure administrator based on specific conditions, and another approval policy for the MySQL Software component to require approval by your software manager for every request.
Approval administrators can only create the approvals, and a business group managers can apply them to entitlements. As a tenant administrator, you can both create the approvals and apply them to entitlements.
- Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a tenant administrator. Only a tenant administrator can both create and apply approval policies.
- Ensure that the CentOS with MySQL catalog item is included in a service. See Scenario: Make a CentOS with MySQL Application Blueprint Available in the Service Catalog.
