The NetApp HCI platform does not provide any end-user self service capabilities of its own.
A self service portal enables end-users to access a portal where they can provision and manage VMs from templates, eliminating administrator requests or activity.
Self-Service functionality can be enabled by leveraging VMware vRealize Orchestration (vRO). This requires a separate VMware license. NetApp HCI officially supports vRealize Orchestration (vRO) through a plug-in.
