VMware Aria Automation (formerly vRealize Automation) March / 8.11.2 Release

Hi Everyone! Here comes the March/8.11.2 release of VMware Aria Automation.

Salt Master Plugin Upgrades

Let’s start with the most exciting feature of this release. SaltStack Config now provides the ability to upgrade Master Plugin to the latest version directly from the UI. The Master Plugins workspace provides you the ability to update the Master Plugin version on your Salt master to match the version of VMware Aria Automation Config. This feature makes it more convenient for customers to have their master plugins updated and they don’t have to worry about their instances being out of sync.

Support Azure for US Government Regions. VMware Aria Automation now supports Azure for US Government Regions as an endpoint. With this update, we can confidently provide support to Federal and State Public sector customers hosted in Azure Cloud.

VMware Aria Automation Orchestrator provides the local repository for the polyglot environment

We also want to highlight some updates on VMware Aria Automation Orchestrator. Customers now have the ability to provide a local repository for the polyglot environment from where the dependencies can be downloaded. After adding custom repositories from the Action Environments page, customers can select to download the dependency from the custom repositories when defining them in the environment definition. This update adds more flexibility for our customers to manage a local repository.
