Is vSphere Replication automation available with newer releases?

It has been a few years (and a few version iterations) since this question has been asked, and I'm hoping the answer will be different at this point. 

I am looking for a way to automate initial configuration of vSphere Replication.  I doesn't matter if it is API based, ESXCli or PowerCLI Cmdlets. 

Thank you.

Hi Cary,

Yes you can automate vSphere Replication using vRealize orchestrator.

Refer to the below blog post, which explains and has a demo to how to automate?

I'm sorry my original ask was not specific enough.  We have the Replication appliance online and configured.  Where we struggle is when a client comes to us and says they want their servers replicated and they provide a list of 20-30 servers.  It would be much easier if we could automate the initial replication setup of the VM in the environment.
