As noted in a previous article, this page shows how many workflows and actions become available on a vCO 5.5.1 server after installing only the officially released Plug-ins, Flings, and Packages (Note that there are hundreds of packages containing thousands of workflows onvarious blogs and in the Orchestrator Communities.) The target vCO 5.5.1 (184.108.40.2067127) Server has: 1083 Workflows and 2069 Actions.

This page was generated using a workflow to access the REST API of a freshly deployed VMware vCenter Orchestrator (vCO) 5.5.1 GA Virtual Appliance. The results indicate a total of: 394 Workflows and 388 Actions. Please note that for each Plug-in you install, additional Library Workflows and Actions will be available.
