Hi @mammadshah ,

Yes, you can resize a machine after provisioning, as a second day operation. If you click on the machine inside the deployment, in the actions tab you will find all second day operations, like resize... Is this what you are looking?

Yes you are right. 

I want to increase CPUs, storage etc. options for this. 

But I am unable to find these options.

Hi,

You should have it .... this is the list of actions you can run as second day ops, in vRA 8.1 https://docs.vmware.com/en/vRealize-Automation/8.1/Using-and-Managing-Service-Broker/GUID-51D6A51D-8...

Do you have policies defined? Look this https://docs.vmware.com/en/vRealize-Automation/8.1/Using-and-Managing-Service-Broker/GUID-AB957C4B-7...

Regards,

Leandro.
