  1. Log in to the vRealize Orchestrator Operations Client as a user with administrator rights.
  2. Select Workflows > Library.
  3. Enter the name of the workflow you want to run in the search box.
  4. On the bottom menu of the workflow panel, click Run.
  5. (Optional) Enter the input parameters required by the workflow and click Run.

    Workflows can require further input while running. For more information, see Requests for User Interaction in the vRealize Orchestrator Operations Client.
