CODE: VMW_VRAOE13

LENGTH: 40 Hours (5 days)

PRICE: £3,520.00

Description

During this five-day course, you focus on using VMware Aria Automation OrchestratorTM to extend the functionality of VMware Aria AutomationTM. You learn how to provide XaaS (Anything as a Service) and implement machine lifecycle extensibility using the VMware Aria Automation Event Broker.

 

You also learn how to create VMware Aria Automation Orchestrator workflows and VMware Aria Automation ABX actions. You learn about various features, including basic scripting implementation along with logic processing to implement a variety of functions to use in your environment.

 

This course teaches implementing debugging, loops, conditions, and user interactions in VMware Aria Automation Orchestrator.

 

The course introduces the VMware Aria Automation Orchestrator HTML 5 interface, along with API calls and REST functions, to give you the groundwork to implement a variety of plug-ins and scripts.

 

This course is designed to give you the tools to craft custom solutions in the product.
