vExpert Cloud Management

vExpert Cloud Management 2020

Det er ikke lenge siden jeg ble tildelt vExpert tittelen for 2020, og nylig ble deltakerne i under-programmene annonsert. For meg er alt dette ganske nytt, men veldig spennende. I Cloud Management programmet for i år er det 2 stk fra Norge av totalt 96 stk fordel på 31 land. En ekstra gratulasjon til Rudi Martinsen som også fikk denne tittelen.

Hva er vExpert Cloud Management

vExpert Cloud Management er koblet mot VMware’s Cloud Management Business Unit som blant annet har ansvaret for følgende produktet vRealize Operations, vRealize Log Insight, vRealize Network Insight, vRealize Automation, og VMware Skyline.

Dette er mange spennende og potente produkter som jeg tro mange ikke vet om eller utnytter til sitt fulle potensialet.

Cloud Management vExperts får direkte tilgang til VMware’s Cloud Management Business Unit, Product Management, Product Marketing, og Engineering teams står det i beskrivelsen av programmet.

Håper og tror dette kan hjelpe meg, mine kollegaer, arbeidsgiver, kunder og andre i digitaliseringen av Norge og bedre utnytte VMware plattformen som så mange allerede benytter i dag.

How to configure SSO web links in VMware Identity Manager Catalog for vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager imported products

When you deploy a product from vRSLCM its single sign-on link is automatically created in the Identity manager catalog. But if you import an existing vRealize product it will not. Bummer! Or that being said I have not tested importing solutions that already had vIDM configured for authentication without the catalog entry.

Anyways if you have imported an existing product into vRSLCM and you are missing the SSO link in your catalog. This is how I fixed it (don’t know if this is the official way)

First you need to enable login with identity manager for the product you want to configure SSO for. When that is done and working do the following for the different products.

vRealize Network Insight

Right click on the login button and copy the URL. You will get something like the url listed under. You just need to fix the URL in the end to be like mine but with your vRNI link.

https://YOUR.IDENTITYMANAGER.FQDN/SAAS/auth/oauth2/authorize?response_type=code&client_id=YOURID_auth_grant&scope=openid+user+email&redirect_uri=http://YOUR.VRNI.FQDN/#home

vRealize Operations Manager

For the vROPS I was not able to use get the correct URL in the same way, here I used F12 in Google Chrome and recorded my login. I found the correct URL on the first line “authorize?response_type=…………..” and It should look something like this.

https:/your.identitymanager.fqdn/SAAS/auth/oauth2/authorize?response_type=code&client_id=yourid&redirect_uri=https://your.vrops.fqdn/ui/vidmClient/vidm

Add SSO weblink to Identity Manager Catalog

When you got the URL go into your Identity managers Administrator Console and under Catalog and Web Apps create a new web link.
In the Configuration menu choose Authentication TypeWeb Application Link” and in Target URL insert the URL you copied from vRealize Network Insight login screen.
