We are glad to announce vRealize Orchestrator Plug-in for vSphere Client Beta Program is now open!
The brand new Orchestrator plug-in will allow you to execute your vRO workflows directly from the vSphere Client (HTML5-based GUI).
It will replace the old plug-in which was only compatible with vSphere Web Client (Flex-based GUI).

About vRealize Orchestrator Plug-in for vSphere Client
The vRealize Orchestrator Plug-in provides integration between vRealize Orchestrator and vSphere Client (HTML5-based GUI). It provides functional parity with the legacy vRealize Orchestrator plug-in for vSphere Web Client (Flex-based GUI).
The plug-in enables users logged in to the vSphere Client to run, schedule and monitor Orchestrator workflows from within the vSphere Client. With this plug-in you can select one or more inventory objects and run or schedule an Orchestrator workflow with its input parameters being automatically pre-populated with the selected context objects.
You can define custom set of workflows which can be run on different inventory objects, depending on their type: virtual machines, clusters, datastores etc. With the plug-in you can also monitor the execution of a workflow, re-run a workflow, delete or cancel workflow executions, pause and resume scheduled workflows and answer or cancel workflows which expect user interaction.
The plug-in is supported for VMware vCenter Server Appliance, version 6.7, 6.7 U1 or 6.7 U2 and vRealize Orchestrator, version 7.6. The plug-in requires vSphere authentication for vRealize Orchestrator.
Notes on vSphere 6.7 U3 and vRO 8.0.1
The Beta plug-in is compatible with vSphere 6.7 Update 3.
The Beta plug-in is compatible with vRO 8.0.1. Note that now both parameters of "Register vCenter Orchestrator as a vCenter Server extension" workflow are mandatory and during plug-in installation you must enter https://<FQDN of vRO appliance> in "External address to advertise this Orchestrator" input.
- New version of the plug-in available at the download location. It contains a bug fix for an issue related to vCenter Server certificates verification.
