You can use the Orchestrator configuration interface to disable a plug-in, but this does not remove the plug-in file from the file system. To remove the plug-in file, you must log in to the machine on which the Orchestrator server is installed and remove the plug-in file manually.

Procedure

  1. Log in as an administrator to the machine on which the Orchestrator server is installed.
  2. Navigate to the Orchestrator plug-in installation folder.

    Option

    Action

    If you installed Orchestrator standalone

    Go to install_directory\VMware\Orchestrator\app-server\conf\plugins

    If you installed Orchestrator Appliance

    Go to install_directory/etc/vco/app-server/plugins

  3. Delete the .dar and .war archives that contain the plug-in you want to remove.
  4. Restart the vRealize Orchestrator services.

    The plug-in is removed from the Orchestrator configuration interface.

  5. Delete the plug-in configuration files.

    Option

    Action

    If the plug-in configuration is stored in a configuration file in the default configuration directory

    Delete the plug-in configuration file.

    • If you installed Orchestrator standalone, delete that file from install_directory\VMware\Orchestrator\app-server\conf\plugins

    • If you installed Orchestrator Appliance, delete that file from install_directory/etc/vco/app-server/plugins

    If the plug-in has a configuration tab in the Orchestrator configuration interface

    Remove the configuration tab by deleting the related files.

    • If you installed Orchestrator standalone, delete the files from install_directory\configuration\webapps

    • If you installed Orchestrator Appliance, delete the files from install_directory/usr/lib/vco/configuration/webapps

  6. Log in to the Orchestrator client.
  7. Select Administer from the drop-down menu in the left upper corner.
  8. Click the Packages view.
  9. Right-click the package to delete, and select Delete element with content.
    Note:

    Orchestrator elements that are locked in the read-only state, for example workflows in the standard library, are not deleted.

  10. Click Delete all.
  11. Restart the vRealize Orchestrator services.

Results

You removed all custom workflows, actions, policies, configurations, settings, and resources related to the plug-in.
