In this chapter, we are going to focus on Approval Policies and how they can assist in the control and governance of our growing vRealize Automation 6.2 environment. We have installed, designed, and now implemented vRA. We have also created blueprints, which are the instruction sets necessary to provision machines.
When discussing blueprints, we mentioned how we would provide a baseline for compute. Within that discussion, we defined maximum compute values as well. This is to make sure we define a hard limit on the resources a machine can consume after being deployed from a blueprint.
What happens if an end user wants a set of compute resources somewhere in between these ranges?
The solution is Approval Policies. ...
