You can use a public key instead of a password. To register a vRealize Orchestrator public key on an SSH host, you can run a workflow from the vRealize Orchestrator client.
Verify that the user account you are logged in with has the necessary permissions to run SSH workflows.
- Log in to the vRealize Orchestrator Client.
- Navigate to and enter the ssh tag in the workflow search box.
- Locate the Register vCO public key on host workflow and click Run.
- On the Register VS-O on Host tab, provide the name of the SSH host, and the user name and password to log in to this host.
Note: You must provide credentials that are registered on the SSH host.
- Click Run.
You can use public key authentication instead of password authentication when you connect to the SSH host as the registered user.
