Once you have seen my previous blog <here> and all the pre-requisites are in place; it’s time to getting started with vRealize Automation Cloud.
Pre-Requisite for this blog step:
Setup a New Project in Cloud Assembly
As you can see, Projects is what define the utilization/linking into almost everything within vRealize Automation Cloud, such as Cloud Zones, Blueprints, Users, Policies, etc. Don’t worry, we will go along all of them in this series.
The easy way to remember is, Project is what define WHAT I will use, WHERE I will deploy, WHICH blueprint, WHOM will use ( probably I am forgetting some more details, but you got the idea) 🙂
Navigate to left panel into Configure > Projects and click on New Project.
Add users who will utilize your system. For the moment, let’s just use your own account as Administrator.
Selecting Cloud Zone
Adding Cloud Zone to your project is what define where you will be hosting your image services, such as vSphere end-point created priorly.
TIP: Always add something as TAGS that refer to what are you doing. In this case, I am using my “vsphere and vra4u-demo” tags.
Now, we have a new project created, a location to deploy new virtual machines. Let’s continue in setting up the vRealize Automation Cloud platform.
