You can use a public key instead of a password. To register an Orchestrator public key on an SSH host, you can run a workflow from the Orchestrator client.


Verify that the user account you are logged in with has the necessary permissions to run SSH workflows.


  1. Click the Workflows view in the Orchestrator client.
  2. In the workflows hierarchical list, expand Library > SSH and navigate to the Register vCO public key on host workflow.
  3. Right-click the Register vCO public key on host workflow and select Start workflow.
  4. Provide the name of the SSH host, and the user name and password to log in to this host.

    You must provide credentials that are registered on the SSH host.

  5. Click Submit to run the workflow.


You can use public key authentication instead of password authentication when you connect to the SSH host as the registered user.
