Objective Overview

Objective 2.2 - Create/Modify a Business Group

  • Evaluate a deployment plan to determine Business Group and Tenant requirements.
  • Create a new Business Group.
  • Modify an existing Business Group.
  • Apply the three roles defined in a Business Group (Admin, support, user)

Objective Prerequisites

The following prerequisites are assumed for this Objective:

  1. A full deployed vRealize Automation 6.x solution (minimal or distributed).
  2. At least one Machine Prefix created by the Fabric Administrator.

Objective Breakdown

Note: You will notice I have moved the objectives around in this post. The reason for this was because I felt it made more sense to demonstrate the create of a Business Group before configuring the different roles within that group.

Evaluate a deployment plan to determine Business Group and Tenant requirements

Both Tenants and Business Groups can be used to segment an organisation within a VMware vRealize Automation Deployment.

Create a new Business Group

Navigate to the VMware vRealize Automation Tenant Portal (https://vra.fqdn/vcac/org/<tenant>)

Enter the credentials for the Tenant Administrator and click Login.

Click Infrastructure.

Click Groups > Business Groups.

Click New Business Group.

Enter the following information mandatory information:

  • The name of the business group into the Name text box.
  • Select a Default Machine prefix by clicking .
  • Enter an email address into the Send alert emails to: text box.

Click OK.

Note: Normally I would configure the Support User, Business Group Manager and Business Users as part of the creation of a Business Group. However, as this is called out separately I have decided to complete this step separately.

Click Logout

Modify an existing Business Group

To modify an existing Business Group, you must be a Tenant Administrator or a Business Group Manager (assuming the Business Group Manager role has been assigned to the Business Group).

In this example, I’m going to Modify the previously created Development_Users Business Group to add the Business Group Manager, Support User and Business User roles.

Navigate to the VMware vRealize Automation Tenant Portal (https://vra.fqdn/vcac/org/)

Enter the credentials for the Tenant Administrator and click Login.

Click Infrastructure.

Click Groups > Business Groups.

Click on the Business Group that you want to modify.

Complete the following:

  • At the Group Manager Role text box, enter/search for the AD User, AD Group or Custom Group for Business Group Manager (as required).
  • At the Support Role text box, enter/search for the AD or Custom Group assigned to the Support User role.
  • At the User Role text box, enter/search for the AD or Custom Group assigned to the Business User role.

Click OK.

Apply the three roles defined in a business group (Admin, Support, User)

I believe this is already covered in the Modify a Business Group section.
