The "Deployments" tab is now renamed to "Resources" as we continue expand the functionality of the Resource Center and increase visiblity of discovered objects.
Resource Center - Simplified view of discovered resources and day 2 actions
Following the last release of Resource View, vRealize Automation enhanced the Resources tab to help cloud admins and end users manage cloud resources across compute, storage, networking, and security. The new features include:
Individual resources page by resource types: virtual machines, networking and security, and volumes
All resources page with advanced filter
In-context resource details panel: show machine details and associated network/storage
Create simple new VM without VMware cloud templates:
Quick create VM
Quick create VM with existing network
Quick create VM with new/existing storage
All-in-one Cloud Resource Center has provisioned, onboarded, migrated and discovered (admin only) resources
Admin only Day 2 action on discovered resources: power on/off, remote console
The same resource center is also live in Service Broker without quick create VM action
Note that the resource views under Infrastructure top level tab will be removed in following months: virtual machines, volumes, networks and security
Image, boot disk, and inline disks even though they are a part of deployment appear as discovered resource in resource view.
Track resource request history through deployment history
Resources can map to multiple cloud accounts, displaying or filtering by these multiple cloud accounts will be supported in the following release in resource center.
