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

vRealize Automation includes a preconfigured embedded vRealize Orchestrator instance. You can access the client of the embedded vRealize Orchestrator from the vRealize Automation Cloud Services Console.
Note: You can access the Control Center of the embedded vRealize Orchestrator by navigating to https:// your_vRA_FQDN/vco-controlcenter and logging in as root.

You can also integrate an external vRealize Orchestrator instance for use in your vRealize Automation extensibility subscriptions and XaaS (Anything as a Service) operations used for cloud templates.
