Display DynamicType object under different catalog resource name

Jump to solution

When i provision Dynamic Type objects (say Veeam) through vRA they are displayed under the catalog resource type "Dynamic Types". Is there a way to "map" these objects to be displayed under a unique catalog resource type named "Veeam Backup Job"?

I created a custom resource with the name "Veeam Backup Job" and a Resource Mapping (i dont know if this is necessary) that uses the "Veeam Backup Job" custom resource as the "Catalog Resource Type". When i provision a backup job the job is displayed under "Dynamic Types"...

Unfortunately, at this time there is no supported way to change the item type listed in the left hand navigation.

Yep, it will only classify the item based on the plugin it was provisioned from (everything before the ':' in the object type field.

You can change some database tables around to get the desired outcome, but that is unsupported.
