the documentation is correct, the API's (link) don't show those methods for instant clones. This could very well be because instant clones is a vsphere technique and not a horizon technique.
Hmm..ok. Sucks a bit - because even though the vm fork operation is happening via the vsphere api, I doubt horizon would understand the cloning / pool updating processes required
So it seems impossible to wrap instant clone pushing into any kind of automation then? Click-click, next-next....bit of a shame if so. Hopefully in a future version.
when i find the time i will try to delve into it,maybe there's a way we don't know yet
For those interested - I was pointed in the direction of this:
Looks like there's a whole bunch of advanced functions for horizon view available in this GitHub repo - PowerCLI-Example-Scripts/Modules/VMware.Hv.Helper at master · vmware/PowerCLI-Example-Scripts · GitHub
Seems exactly what I was looking for - gonna try them out.
