vRealize Automation – Execution Information

How many times have you requested a catalog blueprint and stay staring at the screen waiting it to complete without a clue why it’s taking so long ?!?

Well, that was the case with vRealize Automation up to version 7.0, there was no information about the request status other than “In Progress”.
Starting with vRA 7.1 there’s a new functionality in town, Execution Information, now you can check every phase of the provisioning and see which step takes the longer to conclude your request.

Once you submitted a catalog item, go to Request tab and click on your new request.

On the request’s details page you will see a new link, Execution Information, click on it;

There you can see detailed information of each phase, showing which one been completed, running or waiting to be executed along with time stamps.

This is one of those new features that does not get a lot of attention and publicity, but I believe granular information for a request is a great feature and deserves all the glory.

If you like this vRA 7.1 new features don’t forget to check the Message Board one.
