You can use scheduling to automate your vRealize Orchestrator workflow runs.

When you schedule workflow runs, you set the date, time, and intervals at which the scheduled task runs.


  1. Log in to the vRealize Orchestrator Client.
  2. Select your workflow from the Library menu, and on the workflow panel, click Schedule.
  3. Configure the scheduled task parameters in the General, Scheduling, and Workflow categories.
    Note: The Workflow parameter category is visible only for workflows that require input parameters.
    Parameter Description
    Name The name of the scheduled task.
    Description A short description detailing the purpose of the scheduled task.
    Start The date and time of the first scheduled run of the workflow.
    Start if in the past Select whether to start the workflow, if the scheduled time is in the past. Yes starts the scheduled workflow immediately. No starts the workflow at the next scheduled recurrence.
    Schedule Set the recurrence pattern and event trigger entries of the scheduled task.
  4. Click Create.


You have created a scheduled task for the workflow. Scheduled workflows appear under Activity > Scheduled. You can delete scheduled tasks by clicking Delete on the schedule panel.
