vRealize Orchestrator – Enable HTTP basic Authentication over SSO

In order to use the embedded swagger interface of a vRO instance (/vco/api/docs/index.html) it is necessary to enable HTTP basic Authentication over SSO through the vmo.properties file:

Log-in by SSH, add a line to the vmo properties file and restart service:

echo "com.vmware.o11n.sso.basic-authentication.enabled=true" >> /etc/vco/app-server/vmo.properties
service vco-server restart

Then you can use the swagger interface as a vRO API Explorer !
