Provision machine from blueprint with vCAC 6 plugin

Hi

I'm using the vCAC 6 plugin to provision a machine from a blueprint (using the stock workflow provided), I'm just wondering why after provisioning it doesn't show in the 'Items' list.  I can find it in the list of machines in the 'Infrastructure' tab but not under the 'Items' tab list.  I know that I could add a vCAC/VC machine to this list by provisioning a custom resource after the blueprint is completed, but this is not what I need - I need to add a 'Machine' (the same type as if the blueprint was requested through the catalog).  Does anyone know how this is achieved?

Thanks

This is because the plug-in talks to the IaaS API and that since 6.0 it is necessary to have additional steps using the new vCAC 6 service catalog API. Automation of this API using vCO has not yet being released.

So you can't add a 'Machine' type at the moment? So the solution for the time being would be to add it as a vCAC/VC machine?

Is there anyway to manually do this after running this workflow?

You would have to look at \vCAC\Server\Model Manager Data\Cafe\vCAC-Config options
