Create a vRA Tenant and set Directory and Administrator Configuration with PowervRA

One of the reasons behind creating PowervRA was as a consultant I often have the need to quickly spin up vRA Tenants and / or components within those Tenants to facilitate development or testing work of other things I am automating. PowervRA contains three functions, which when joined together would make a basic vRA Tenant available for use: New-vRATenant, New-vRATenantDirectory and Add-vRAPrincipalToTenantRole.

The following code example demonstrates how to use these in conjunction with each other to make a vRA Tenant (make sure to first of all have generated an API token with Connect-vRAServer with an account that has permission to create a vRA Tenant):

Note that since New-vRATenantDirectory has a lot of parameters, I have taken advantage of the ability to instead provide the necessary JSON text directly to it.

The result is a fresh vRA Tenant with a Directory configured and admin accounts assigned to both the Tenant Admins and Infrastructure Admins roles:
