Compare changes between workflow versions with the graphic difference tool.

By default, the vRealize Orchestrator Version History displays differences between workflow versions in a YAML form. You can also perform a visual comparison between different workflow versions. You can view changes in:

  • The general workflow information, such as version number and workflow description.
  • The variables used in the workflow.
  • The input and output parameters of the workflow.
  • The workflow schema.


Create a workflow.


  1. Log in to the vRealize Orchestrator Client.
  2. Navigate to Library > Workflows, and select one of your workflows.
  3. Edit the content of the workflow.
    For example, you can add an extra Scriptable task element on the Schema tab.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Select the Version History tab.
  6. From the top-right, select Diff Visually.
    You can now perform a visual comparison between two selected workflow versions. You can select which versions to compare from the Version drop-down menu. The vRealize Orchestrator Client interface displays a side-by-side comparison between two versions of a workflow.
  7. (Optional) You can restore a workflow to another version by selecting Use Version.
