VMware is glad to announce the general availability of version 1.0 of the vRealize Code Stream Management Pack for IT DevOps!
Simplify vRealize Automation and vRealize Orchestrator content lifecycle management
This new management pack allows customers to automate the lifecycle of vRealize Automation content (blueprints, forms, workflows, etc.) and move them across various vRA instances or tenants as part of their development, test and production stages. One challenge today is that moving content from one environment to another is often a manual, complicated, time-consuming and error-prone process. This management pack includes pre-built pipeline templates and workflow "magic sauce" that greatly automate and simplify that process.
A great way to operationalize DevOps for IT and Infrastructure as Code initiatives
Blueprints, workflows and any other types of SDDC "content" are essentially code and, like any other code, should follow development best practices to ensure that changes do not break anything in production. These best practices include developing and testing that code in a segregated environment before deploying them to production. As more datacenter objects become software defined, it’s important for IT and Cloud Infrastructure teams to manage the lifecycle of that content just like application code.
Built, Tested and Deployed on VMware GA technology
Installable in minutes, the management pack runs on top of a single vRA 6.2.3/Code Stream 1.2/vRealize Orchestrator 6.0 appliance. In true dogfooding spirit, these platforms were also used in the continuous integration and testing process of the management pack itself.
