vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager vRSLCM API

I recently worked with a customer to complete a Proof of Concept for the vRealize Suite and how it adds value for both traditional Virtual Machines deployments and also kubernetes deployments (including with VMware Tanzu). In the first session, we immediately hit a challenge because the customer had a non-standard Top Level Domain (TLD) and this meant we could not use the VMware vRealize Easy Installer UI to install vRealize Automation or the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) user interface to install any of the vRealize Suite.

In this developing series of posts, we will look at how we can use the vRSLCM API to install and manage the different components of the vRealize Suite, including:

Main Posts:

  • Using the vRSLCM API to create credentials in vRSLCM Locker.
  • Using the vRSLCM API to install VMware Identity Manager and configure the Global Environment.
  • Using the vRSLCM API to install VMware vRealize Automation.
  • Using the vRSLCM API to install VMware vRealize Automation SaltStack Config.
  • Using the vRSLCM API to install VMware vRealize Operations.
  • Using the vRSLCM API to install VMware vRealize Log Insight.
  • Using the vRSLCM API to complete Day 2 Actions on Environments.

Addiitonal Posts:

Just as a reminder, all of the vRSLCM API documents are available in two main locations:

  1. On the vRSLCM appliance, navigate to https://{vrslcm.fqdn}/api/swagger-ui.html.
  2. From the VMware Code website, navigate to the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager REST API document pages.
