The list of actions includes the name of the action, the objects that each one modifies, and the object levels at which you can run the action. You use this information to ensure that you correctly apply the actions as alert recommendations and when the actions are available in the Actions menu.

Actions and Modified Objects

vRealize Operations Manager actions make changes to objects in your managed vCenter Server instances.

Action Object Levels

The actions are available when you work with different object levels, but they modify only the specified object. If you are working at the cluster level and select Power On VM, all the virtual machines in the cluster for which you have access permission are available for you to run the action. If you are working at the virtual machine level, only the selected virtual machine is available.
