Master the configuration, programming, and interaction of plugins with Orchestrator to efficiently automate your VMware infrastructure
Through this practical guide, you will gain an understanding of VMware vRealize Orchestrator and its role in the vSphere architecture and automation. You will learn about Orchestrator clusters as well as vRealize Automation integration. A full introduction to using the visual programming tools without needing any additional infrastructure is aimed at beginners with limited resources. This is followed by an extensive look at how to integrate the base plugins into your workflows, such as e-mail, AMQP, SNMP, and so on. We will also look at how to use the Orchestrator API to trigger workflows from other programs.
Through this book you will be able to get the most out of your Orchestrator installation, and develop complex workflows and create your own highly integrated automations of vCenter, vCloud, and vRealize environments.
