We have spent several chapters concentrating on setting up Infrastructure as a Service. In this chapter, we begin to experience the next step in making our vRealize Automation environment with the introduction of Application Provisioning through AppD. AppD allows us to provided Applications as a Service to end users. We discussed how to install and configure the vRealize Automation Application Services appliance. We also imported out-of-the-box samples, and modified them so we could publish them to the vRA portal.
In Chapter 8, REST API and vRealize Orchestrator, we will focus on the REST API.
