Setting a timeout for User Interaction in vRealize Orchestrator

When using a User Interaction element in your workflow you might want to have it timeout after a certain amount of time. A user interaction accepts an input parameter of the Date-type that contains the date and time when the user interaction should timeout if it is not answered.
 
In the image below you see a workflow that contains a Scriptable task used to create the date_time variable to be used in the user interaction.

vRealize Orchestrator allows you to configure permissions for users in your authentication domain to access your vRO deployment with different types of access.

One example is a group of developers that you only want to allow access to one or just a few folders in your vRO environment.

Workflow to use for vRO Cluster Demonstrations

This simple workflow can be used to demonstrate the failover behavior in case of a vRealize Orchestrator node failure. It creates the number of VMs that your specify. I suggest 30. During the execution of the workflow power off one node of the cluster and you will be able to demonstrate that the execution continues on another node.

The workflow is available as a downloadable package:

Process a text file from a Resource Element through an Array

This example workflow shows how you can use a ResourceElement containing a list of virtual machine names and execute a workflow for each of the VMs in the list. The workflows and actions are available as a package here: com.vmwarebits.vmlistExample.zip.

To use the workflow yoi create a ResourceElement and import a text file that contains the virtual machine names, such as in the next image.
