vRealize Automation

What's New in VMware vRealize Automation 7.4

vRA 7.4 is a minor release, but brings some long awaited goodies to the table for vRA users that should help hold users over until the 8.0 release happens sometime in the future.

New features include expanded Solution Exchange content, the ability to deploy OVF templates as part of blueprints, Custom Request forms enabling control over the end-user request experience, and vRealize Orchestrator multi-tenancy leveraging vRA tenant authentication providers.

Initial vRealize Automation (vRA) Configuration Part 1 - Endpoint Configuration

Endpoints enable external communications from vRealize Automation to other systems that perform various functions from virtual machine hosting and provisioning to networking & security and orchestration.

In this part of the initial configuration, we'll cover the creation of some of the main endpoints you'll likely encounter in a vRealize Automation deployment, including vCenter, NSX, vRealize Orchestrator, and vRealize Operations Manager (vROPS).

For this example vRA v7.3 is assumed.  vRO 7.3, NSX 6.4, and vROPS 6.6.1 are all assumed.
