When you have installed and configured vCenter Orchestrator, you can use Orchestrator to automate frequently repeated processes related to the management of the virtual environment.

  • Log in to the Orchestrator client, run, and schedule workflows on the vCenter Server inventory objects or other objects that Orchestrator accesses through its plug-ins.

  • Publish the weboperator Web view and provide browser access to Orchestrator workflows to users and user groups.

  • Duplicate and modify the standard Orchestrator workflows and write your own actions and workflows to automate operations in vCenter Server.

  • Develop plug-ins, Web services, and Web views to extend the Orchestrator platform.

  • Run workflows on your vSphere inventory objects by using the vSphere Web Client.
