You can run a workflow from the vRealize Orchestrator Client to create a simple XML document for testing purposes.


  • Verify that the user account you are logged in with has the necessary permissions to run XML workflows.
  • Verify that you created the c:/orchestrator folder at the root of the Orchestrator server system or set access rights to another folder.


  1. Log in to the vRealize Orchestrator Client.
  2. Navigate to Library > Workflows and enter the xml and samples_xml_(simple) tags in the workflow search box.
  3. Locate the Create a simple XML document workflow and click Run.
  4. Enter the filepath to the XML document to create.
    For example, c:/orchestrator/filename.xml.
  5. Click Run.


The workflow creates an XML document that contains a list of users. The attributes for each entry are user ID and name.
