Viewing Plan Execution History

For each executed orchestration plan (that is, upon transition from one stable state to another), Orchestrator will generate the Plan Execution Report. The report contains plan performance details and provides information on each processed VM and any errors encountered during plan execution.

To access the report for an orchestration plan:

  1. Log in to the Orchestrator UI as an Orchestrator Administrator, Plan Author or Plan Operator. For more information, see Accessing Orchestrator UI.
  2. Navigate to Orchestration Plans.
  3. Select the plan.
  4. From the Reports menu, choose Execution.

The Reports page will be displayed. The Show Execution reports option will be automatically enabled to list all available Plan Execution Reports for the plan.

  1. Click the report name to download and open the Plan Execution Report.


Viewing Plan Execution Report

The Plan Execution Report will use the default report template or a custom template created earlier. After the template pages, the results of plan execution will be appended. The report will display a plan overview, summary of VM groups included in the plan, with drill-down hyperlinks to specific VMs and color-coded results of processing every plan step.

For every group, VM and step included in the plan, the processing start time and duration will be recorded.

To include less details in the report output, you can specify more granular report settings as described in section Configuring Report Options.


Summary information on plan execution results over all Orchestrator scopes will be also available on the Home Page Dashboard.
