Workflow Creation

Design and automate complex, customized workflows in just a few clicks. Take advantage of the extensive workflow library, which contains prebuilt tasks that solve specific challenges and perform common administrative actions. Create new building blocks for workflows as well as for other actions and policies, such as infrastructure failures or state changes, using a JavaScript-based scripting engine.

Scalable Performance & Efficient Troubleshooting

Execute hundreds or thousands of concurrent workflows on single or distributed architectures. Perform server restarts—even for long-running processes—without losing workflow state and context due to integration with production-grade external databases that store vital details. Centralized administrative interface for efficient configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting experience.

Powerful Management

Ensure proper change control across the environment with centralized access to scripts and process-related primitives. Integrate new types using Dynamic XaaS, and easily export workflows and manage inventory for better reuse and collaboration.

Open, Flexible Architecture

Build plug-ins using the self-contained SDK. Leverage third-party plug-ins that automate management and operational tasks across both VMware and third-party applications.


Extend the capabilities of other VMware products, including vRealize Automation and vRealize Operations, and increase the ROI of existing infrastructure, tools and processes.
