You can configure one or more vRealize Orchestrator integrations, so that you can use workflows as part of extensibility.

vRealize Automation includes a preconfigured vRealize Orchestrator instance that can be used for extensibility subscriptions. You can also access the client of the embedded vRealize Orchestrator from the vRealize Automation Cloud Services Console.

With the vRealize Orchestrator integration to vRealize Automation Cloud Assembly, you can add an external vRealize Orchestrator instance and use the included workflow library in extensibility subscriptions. For more information, see Extensibility workflow subscriptions.


  • Verify that you have cloud administrator credentials. For more information, see What are the vRealize Automation Cloud Assembly user roles.
  • Migrate your vRealize Orchestrator 7.x instance to version 8.0. See, Migrating Standalone vRealize Orchestrator to External vRealize Orchestrator 8.0 in Installing, Configuring, and Migrating VMware vRealize Orchestrator.
