Is possible to write workflow in vCenter Orchestrator with state management capability?

Is possible to write workflow in vCenter Orchestrator with state management capability?

Actually I want to create a workflow those include four or five sub workflow and when we execute main workflow it internally execute containing workflow sequentially. When any of containing workflow fails it throw error and after resolving error when execute main workflow it resume to execute from same point.  

Please suggest me any idea how to write such workflow or any other way to achieve this kind of requirement.

You just need to drag and drop your 5 workflows in the main workflow, link them in order and on each subworkflow add an exception handling link to a remediation workflow.

All these mechanisms are available in vCO. You need to define what to do in case of exception and how to remediate. vCO include several library workflows were often remediation is used to delete the objects that have been created in a failed workflow. You can use these examples as a starting point.
