This role can even be delegated to non-admins in case you do not want the certificate managers to have admin rights to vRSLCM.
Dedicated Multi-tenancy Support – vRealize Automation 8.1 features a new multi-tenant feature that allows administrator to create multiple tenants to carve out infrastructure and create policies that are isolated to a tenant. The multi-tenancy configuration and setup is done in the vRSLCM 8.1 product.
GitHub Integration – Leverage source control for content pipelines with GitHub. This expands our source control story for treating content as code scenarios and creating content pipelines in vRSLCM.
