The vRealize Automation solution brings in cloud constructs and their relationships from vRealize Automation into vRealize Operations Manager for operational analysis.

You can use the following items in the virtual infrastructure as object types in vRealize Operations Manager.

  • Tenant

  • Reservation

  • Business Group

  • Deployment

  • Blueprint

  • Managed Resources

  • Reservation Policy

  • Virtual Machine

  • Datastore

  • vRealize Automation World

  • vRealize Automation Management Pack Instance

Objects types in an enterprise environment are related to other objects types in that environment. Object types are either part of a larger object type, or they contain smaller component objects, or both. When you select a parent object type, vRealize Operations Manager shows any related child objects types.
