  • When you launch a VM-based workload to a public cloud using Workload Manager, installation of the worker happens automatically in a process called dynamic bootstrapping.  When Workload Manager issues the API call to the cloud endpoint to launch the VM, it passes as user data a bootstrap script that downloads and installs prerequisite software for the agent, and then downloads and starts the agent executable.

  • If your target VM-based cloud does not support dynamic bootstrapping, or if you prefer not to use dynamic bootstrapping, the alternative is to use "pre-bootstrapped" images for your VM-based services. These are OS images with worker software pre-installed. See Management Agent (Worker) for more details. 

  • You can also install the agent on VMs in your cloud that are were not launched through the Workload Manager in a process called brownfield VM import. See Virtual Machine Management for more details.
