You request input parameters from users during a workflow run by adding a User interaction schema element to the workflow. When a workflow encounters a User interaction element, it suspends its run and waits for the user to provide the required data.


  1. Log in to the vRealize Orchestrator Client.
  2. Navigate to Library > Workflows, and select your workflow.
  3. Select the Schema tab and drag a User interaction element to the appropriate position in the workflow schema.
  4. (Optional) Enter a name and description for the user interaction.
  5. (Optional) Under Options, configure the security group, security assignees, and timeout date variables for the user interaction.
  6. To save your workflow, click Save.


You added a user interaction element to a workflow. When the workflow reaches this element, it waits for information from the user before continuing its run.
