You can associate workflows with a vSphere object type to run the workflows directly on the inventory objects of that type.

Workflows associated with inventory object types are listed in the pop-up menu that appears when you right-click an inventory object, and in the Actions menu.

Verify that you have configured at least one Orchestrator server to work with the same Single Sign-On instance to which both the vCenter Server and vSphere Web Client are pointing. You must also ensure that Orchestrator is registered as a vCenter Server extension. You register Orchestrator as a vCenter Server extension when you specify a user (by providing the user name and password), who has the privileges to manage vCenter Server extensions. For more information, see Installing and Configuring VMware vRealize Orchestrator.

Log in as a member of the Administrators group to be able to configure the default Orchestrator server.
