You can migrate your existing vRealize Orchestrator that is embedded in a vRealize Automation 7.x environment to an embedded vRealize Orchestrator 8.x.

For information about migrating standalone vRealize Orchestrator environments, see the Migrating a Standalone vRealize Orchestrator.

Migration is supported for vRealize Orchestrator 7.3 or later.

The vRealize Orchestrator migration transfers an embedded source vRealize Orchestrator configuration to your current vRealize Orchestrator 8.x environment, overwriting all existing elements such as workflows, actions, configuration and resource elements, including secure strings in workflows and configuration elements, packages, tasks, policies, certificates and trusted certificates, plug-ins and plug-in configurations, custom records in the the js-io-rights.conf file, Control Center system properties. The migration includes both built-in and custom vRealize Orchestrator content.

The migrated vRealize Orchestrator configuration does not include the following data that might affect the target vRealize Orchestrator performance and use.

  • The VCAC, VCACCAFE, GEF, Data Management, and Workflow Documentation plug-ins of the source vRealize Orchestrator. Aside from workflow runs, all vRealize Orchestrator content associated with these plug-ins is not migrated to the target environment.
  • Syslog server configuration in the Logging Integration page in Control Center.
  • Workflow execution logs.
  • Dynamic Types plug-in configurations.
Note: Before migrating, if your vRealize Orchestrator endpoints are not assessed, you must reassess your vRealize Orchestrator instance.
