Summary

In this chapter, we had a close look at workflows. We learned how to run them using the Orchestrator Client and the vSphere Web Client. We also saw how we can configure and run a workflow directly from the vCenter inventory. This feature will come in handy frequently, as this is what makes Orchestrator stand out.

The possibility to schedule workflow is pretty cool for admin tasks, but it has a much wider range of possibilities. In advanced programming, you can create scheduled tasks by running a workflow, making it possible to automate, for instance, the creation of a VM at a given time.

In the next chapter, we will learn how to combine the existing workflows together.
