In multi-tenancy environments, customers can manage allocation of resources on a per-tenant basis using Virtual Private Zones (VPZs).

In vRealize Automation 8.x, customers can configure mult-tenancy environments using VMware Life Cycle Manager and Workspace ONE Access. These tools enable users to set up multi-tenancy and create and configure tenants. After tenants are configured, provider administrators can create Virtual Private Zones in Cloud Assembly and then they can assisgn Zones to tenants using the Cloud Assembly Manage Tenants functionality.

Multi-tenancy relies on coordination and configuration of three different VMware products as outlined below:
  • Workspace ONE Access - This product provides the infrastructure support for multi-tenancy and the Active Directory domain connections that provide user and group management within tenant organizations.
  • vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager - This product supports the creation and configuration of tenants for supported products, such as vRealize Automation. In addition, it provides some certificate management capabilities.
  • vRealize Automation - Providers and users log in to vRealize Automation to access tenants in which they create and manage deployments.

When configuring multi-tenancy, users should be familiar with all three of these products and their associated documentation.
