You can integrate vCMP® hosts with the F5 iWorkflow™ Networking connector. iWorkflow compatibility with BIG-IP® system releases is limited to explicit releases.
For proper communication, F5® iWorkflow™ must have network access to the vCMP® host. Before you can manage cloud resources, you must define a network route between the iWorkflow device and the vCMP host network. This route can use either management or internal networks.
To enable integration between the vCMP® host and F5 iWorkflow™, you must configure a cloud connector. A cloud connector is a resource that identifies the local or virtual environment in which a tenant deploys applications and, when necessary, adds parameters required by third-party cloud providers.
As part of the connection creation process, the iWorkflow system takes these actions:
The new guest name appears as a new entry in the Servers panel. As the creation and provisioning process progresses, the guest status displays on the properties panel for the new guest.
Additionally, when iWorkflow creates a new guest, it adds an entry to the Activities panel.
An iApp is an application template located on F5 devices. When you discover a vCMP guest, all iApps® application templates installed on that guest are imported to the F5® iWorkflow™ system.
