You use the Projects workspace to create projects, which represent upcoming environment changes that affect the capacity of the object. You define the project name, add a description, and select a status. You add one or more scenarios to the project to forecast the change to capacity that you expect to implement.

To create, edit, view, and forecast a project, click Environment in the left pane, select an object, and click the Projects tab. On the Projects toolbar, click the plus sign to add a project. To edit a selected project, click the pencil.

Status

Planned - no badges affected. Sets the created project to the planned state, and runs the what-if analysis to visualize the forecasted effects on the capacity of your object.

Committed - badges affected. Commits or reserves the project in the selected capacity container. All views, reports, and dashboards reflect the project capacity as though you deployed the project. To determine whether the reserved resources for this project affect the time remaining or both the time and capacity remaining, click Advanced and select one of the menu items. When you select Committed - badges affected, capacity is reserved based on the advanced setting that you select. In the advanced settings, when you select This project affects the Time Remaining badge, vRealize Operations Manager reserves capacity on the implementation date set for the project. When you select This project affects the Time Remaining badge, vRealize Operations Manager reserves capacity immediately.
