Version & Release Management

vRealize Orchestrator Integration into GIT

Product Description:

True version control system for automation development within vRealize Orchestrator. Version controls all orchestration automation code from the development to release stages. Backups development work automatically with our intelligent automatic change watcher and creates release sets for code migration and automation releases.

Business Challenge:

Users of vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) face the challenge that they must manually manage packages of workflows created in vRO.  Each Workflow is created in vRO and maintained in vRO with difficulty managing versions and releases on scale.  Integration with CodeStream allows for workflows to be treated as artifacts within the context of vRA; however, version and release management of the code in the workflow is a manual process and not an option without CodeStream.

Solution Details:

Centralized Service and Shopping Cart Experience

End user is able to login to a centralized interface and request available services (new, change existing, and decommission existing).

Infrastructure and Location Scalability

End user is able select from multiple vRA instances and determines which instance a new service or blueprint is created through one ServiceNow interface. Users can request new services, reconfigure, and take action on existing assets from ServiceNow without having to locate the vRA instance for that asset and then log into different vRA instances to manage user assets.

Manageability

Optional CFS vRA Monitoring product license enables ServiceWatch to proactively monitor critical services across a vRA Distributed install automatically triggering Incidents with attached log files showing service outages when they happen instead of waiting for users to report outages.

Synchronization

Auto Discovery keeps vRA and ServiceNow synchronized to ensure that if something is added to vRA it is reflected in ServiceNow and if something is modified in ServiceNow it is reflected in vRA.

Migration

Auto Discovery automatically discovers existing assets in a new vRA instance. Auto Discovery will automatically identify vRA assets and populate ServiceNow with those assets making Catalog Items, BluePrints, Custom Properties, Build Profiles, Network Profiles, and Managed/Owened Machines available in ServiceNow.

Key Features

Version Control Functionalities:

  • Add/remove an existing GIT repository to the vRO inventory
  • Update vRO codebase to be the most recent version stored in GIT(Pull from GIT)
  • Save changes made in vRO to GIT repository (commit and push to GIT)
  • Revert current vRO codebase to a previous version stored in GIT(GIT revert) for accidental removals and changes.
  • Merging GIT branches and creating automation release sets from vRO (No direct interactions with GIT is needed).
  • Create new branches for new development projects or independent environments.
  • Time and Date Stamp vRO actions in both vRO and GIT with the UserID associated so its clear what happened, when it happened and who requested the action.

Management Functionalities:

  • Automatically detect and push changes into GIT. Any changes made to the automation project will be automatically backed up in GIT with no extra steps involved.
  • Attach user, date, and changes made to the commit pushed into GIT
  • Set a working package of a remote repository. Multiple vRO packages can be version controlled at one point and each package may be changed at any point of need.
  • Set a working branch for a remote repository. GIT plugin will allow the admins to set any GIT branches as the working branch within the selected repository.

System Requirements

  • vRealize Orchestrator 5.5 or above
  • Cloud Hosted or On-Premise version of GIT

Pre-Requisites

  • These Service NOW plugins: Orchestration Activities; Orchestration Virtualization; and Discovery
  • CFS Extensions and CloudClient
