vRealize Automation can work with vRealize Operations Manager to perform advanced workload placement, provide deployment health and virtual machine metrics, and display pricing.

Number and type of integrations

Integration between the two products must be on-premises to on-premises, not a mix of on-premises and cloud.

You can integrate one vRealize Automation instance with multiple vRealize Operations Manager instances, but a vRealize Operations Manager instance can only be connected to one vRealize Automation instance.

You cannot connect an aggregated vRealize Operations Manager cluster to vRealize Automation.

Basic requirements for integration

To integrate with vRealize Operations Manager, go to Infrastructure > Connections > Integrations. To add the integration, you need the vRealize Operations Manager URL and credentials for the login account described in the next section. In addition, vRealize Automation and vRealize Operations Manager need to manage the same vSphere endpoint.

vRealize Operations Manager integration credentials with vRealize Automation

This section describes the credentials that are required to integrate with vRealize Operations Manager. Note that these credentials are established and configured in vRealize Operations Manager, not in vRealize Automation.

Provide a local or non-local login account to vRealize Operations Manager with the following read privileges.

  • Adapter Instance vCenter Adapter > VC Adapter Instance for vCenter-FQDN

A non-local account might need to be imported first, before you can assign its read-only role.

Login account for integration

In vRealize Operations Manager, you need a local or non-local vRealize Operations Manager login account for the integration to use. The account requires read-only privileges to the vCenter adapter instance for the vSphere endpoint. Note that a non-local account might need to be imported in vRealize Operations Manager and have its read-only role assigned. For the integration, the username format for non-local account login is username@domain@authenticated-source, such as jdoe@company.com@workspaceone. Authenticated sources are defined during vRealize Operations Manager server initial setup.
