About Protector vRealize Orchestrator integration

Ops Center Protector VMware Application Guide

Part Number

Protector can be controlled via vRealize Orchestrator (vRO), enabling users to include Protector backup and restore functionality in their vRO Workflows. A Connector for VMware vRO is provided with Protector that includes a Package with Scripting Objects, Actions and Workflows. Users can create custom workflows from the actions provided in the package, or copy then modify the existing workflows. Protector vRO workflows can be run via vRealize Orchestrator, vRealize Automation and vSphere (via VMware's vRO Plug-in for vSphere), with functionality depending on the vCenter version used.

  • Actions to browse the com.hitachivantara.protector... folders containing actions
