Introduction I have been working on deploying VMware vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) 1.2 for a customer into their environment. One of the customer requirements was to be able to use SSO and RBAC with vRSLCM. The only way to this in vRSLCM is to VMware Identity Manager (VIDM). Whilst this process is semi-automated, it hasn’t been as easy as it should have been. Following on from my initial article (VMware vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager – The tale of SSO and RBAC) I came up against another issue that I thought was worth sharing.

Introduction Recently I was asked to deliver a solution for VMware vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) 1.2 for a customer to support their requirement for content management between VMware vRealize Automation 7.3.1 environments. The reason we decided to use vRSLCM rather than VMware vRealize CodeStream Management Pack for IT DevOps (AKA Houdini) was we wanted to future proof the solution. If you didn’t know, from VMware vRealize Automation 7.4 onward, the Houdini functionality has been deprecated and is not supported.
