- vRealize Automation Application Services has been merged into vRealize Automation. The infrastructure and application blueprint authoring experiences are converged into a unified designer canvas.
- The event broker is a new event-based extensibility feature that replaces vCloud Automation Center Designer (CDK) and life cycle Callouts. The event broker is a message service that disseminates events to subscribers.
- The workflow stubs are being replaced by the event broker workflow subscriptions. They are still available, supported, and they can be used, but they are planned to be removed in a future version of vRealize Automation. To ensure future product compatibility, you should use the event broker workflow subscriptions to run custom workflows based on state changes.
