Resolved Issues

  • For user interactions, the external values drop-down menu used to filter actions by return type fails to display the object.

    The workflow variable types mapped as input parameters for user interactions are not transferred correctly to the workflow input form.

  • An incorrect email is displayed during a push operation.

    When performing a push operation to a remote Git repository, the displayed author email is the default email configured in vRealize Orchestrator and not the actual user email.

  • When migrating vRealize Orchestrator 7.4 or earlier, the migration script fails on "Validates Orchestrator database content." step, while displaying the help output of the db-validate script.

    When the database password contains special characters, this causes the db-validate script to fail.

  • You cannot duplicate a workflow in the same folder as the source workflow. 

    You cannot duplicate a workflow in the same folder as the source workflow. The duplicate is moved to the web-root folder.

  • You cannot configure local sites in the SRM plug-in. 

    When you use a vRealize Orchestrator deployment authenticated with vRealize Automation, you cannot configure local sites in the SRM plug-in. The workflow fails with the following error: "ReferenceError: "SRMPluginConfig" is not defined."

  • The workflow run fails if you have an attribute that uses a Composite type with a Object reference field value passed as a input parameter to an embedded workflow.

    The workflow run fails with a validation error when the workflow triggers an embedded workflow that includes composite type objects that contain the plug-in type.

  • The "Add Key" workflow finishes successfully, but no key is found in the Certificate Authority keystore. 

    When you add custom keys, such as a RSA private key, by using the "Add Key" workflow, the workflow run finishes successfully, but the key is not added to the keystore.
