Workflow Name

Description

Add a vCAC host

Adds a vCloud Automation Center host to the plug-in inventory. For tenant management and administration tasks, you can use the Inventory view to run workflows on each tenant. To use the full function of the plug-in for a tenant, create a dedicated vCloud Automation Center host for each tenant.

Add a vCAC host using component registry

Adds a vCloud Automation Center host to the plug-in inventory with a Per User Session connection. You must be logged in to the Orchestrator client with the credentials of the vCloud Automation Center system administrator.

To use this function with an external vCenter Orchestrator server, you must register the Orchestrator server in the vCloud Automation Center component registry. To do this registration, you must run the Register vCO in vCAC Component Registry workflow and restart the Orchestrator server.

Add the IaaS host of a vCAC host

Adds the IaaS host of the selected vCloud Automation Center host to the plug-in inventory.

Remove a vCAC host

Removes a vCloud Automation Center host from the plug-in inventory.

Update a vCAC host

Updates a vCloud Automation Center host in the plug-in inventory.

Validate a vCAC host

Validates the vCloud Automation Center host and the connection to it.

Note:

If your vCenter Orchestrator server is registered in the vCloud Automation Center component registry, a vCloud Automation Center host with the name Default is automatically added. The Default host is using Per User Session connection to the default tenant. The embedded Orchestrator server in the vCloud Automation Center installation is registered in the vCloud Automation Center component registry by default.
