Managing vRealize Automation (vRA) using PowervRA

Have you ever felt like you're drowning in a sea of manual tasks and repetitive processes? Do you find yourself daydreaming about a magical tool that can automate your workflows and make your life easier? Well, my friend, PowervRA might just be that tool you're looking for.

PowervRA is a PowerShell module that allows you to manage vRealize Automation (vRA) 8.x environments using PowerShell scripts. PowervRA provides a powerful and flexible toolset for automati

ng routine tasks and streamlining workflows in vRA. With PowervRA, you can create custom functions to extend its capabilities and integrate with other tools and processes. Now PowervRA code directly run on vRo, it makes developer life lot easy.

PowerVRA leverages the vRealize Automation REST API to provide access to the vRA environment. It abstracts the complexity of the REST API and provides a simplified, easy-to-use interface for managing vRA resources. This makes it easier for users to interact with vRA and automate routine tasks.

To install the PowervRA module

Install-Module -Name PowervRA -Scope CurrentUser


One of the features of PowervRA is the ability to call REST APIs in vRA 8.X. This can be useful if you want to perform operations that are not available through PowervRA cmdlets, or if you want to automate tasks that require REST API calls.

To call a REST API in vRA 8.X using PowervRA, you can use the Invoke-vRARestMethod cmdlet. This cmdlet allows you to send HTTP requests to the vRA 8.10 API and receive the corresponding responses. Here's an example:

To get the REST API details use the below link.


Get the catalog item details

Invoke-vRARestMethod -Method GET -URI '/catalog/api/items'

Get the Deployment details

Invoke-vRARestMethod -Method GET -URI '/deployment/api/deployments'

Alternative Approach :

Below is the regular way of logging into vRa using Invoke-RestMethord

PowervRA is a powerful tool for managing vRealize Automation (vRA) 8.Xenvironments with PowerShell. One of its key features is the ability to call REST APIs in vRA 8.X, which allows for greater flexibility and automation of tasks. It can easily send HTTP requests to vRA 8.X APIs and receive the corresponding responses. This can be particularly useful for operations that are not available through PowervRA cmdlets or for tasks that require custom automation. Overall, PowervRA and its REST API capabilities provide a convenient way to manage vRA 8.X environments with PowerShell.
