vRA 7.3 – Configuring the SovLabs Plugin

In my previous article about the SovLabs plugin I covered some pre-requisites and sent you over to the SovLabs documentation to finish the installation.  Once you have installed the vRO plugin using the vRO Control Center you will go to your vRO Client and see a new folder that has all the Sovlabs vRO modules.

6. Once completed login to vRA and as long as you are a member of the group that you assigned above you will have a new Service named “SovLabs vRA Extensibility” and within the service will be a single catalog item.  “Add License – SovLabs”  Select this catalog item and input your license.
