Using the OneFuse vRealize Automation module, it’s easy to create API-based, blueprints-as-a-service to drive solutions from upstream automation tools or scripts.
OneFuse eliminates the security risk of requiring direct access to a vRealize automation, enabling least-privilege access for specific use cases via policy-based services, versus exposing the full vRealize Automation API or micro-managing permissions. Each policy defines the automation use case, organization, cloud template and optional input parameters – with the added flexibility of having the requester influence all use cases dynamically via templated fields.

View the active deployment representing the resource(s) and relevant data of each policy execution
Features and Capabilities
- Drive from any tool, e.g. vRealize Automation, Terraform, Ansible, ServiceNow, CloudBolt CMP or directly via the API
- OneFuse enables least-privilege access wherein each policy serves as an API-based service, restricted to the specific use cases defined in the policy, without exposing the full vRealize Automation API
- Each policy defines the automation use case, organization, cloud template and optional input parameters
- Ability to dynamically assign the owner for vRA-deployed resources provisioned using the policy
- Multiple vRealize Automation Policies (each specifying a vRealize Automation Endpoint) can safely co-exist, allowing for isolated testing and promotion without disruption
