vRA external values – multiple choice

I use external values in vRA (dropdown), is there a way to have multiple choice?

I get a list of software’s that are available on puppet and I want the user to have a choice to select multiple software’s.

also - we don’t use puppet plug-in, this is done with ldap directory.

(vRA 7.0.1)

  • create a vRO action that returns an Array/String.
  • in the action you can fill up the arrays with the Values you like to select in the dropdown.
  • create a Custom Attribute of type String with dropdown and select as external value the action
  • Add Custom Attribute to Blueprint.

have fun!
