VRA:VRO Expire workflow : Unable to set ArchiveDays for Expired VMs

In VRA6.2 I have used below module to update Archive Days. But in 7.2 the same is not working. Any idea on how to do it?

ironPropretiesValue = new Properties();

ironPropretiesValue.put("ExpireDays", a_IronArchivedays);

actionResult = System.getModule("com.vmware.library.vcac").updateVCACEntity(hostId,modelName,entitySetName,entityIdString,ironPropretiesValue,links,headers) ;

All I need is a solution to set "Destroy On" date to user requested date and get the VM deleted on that day.

You can try to configure and run an event broker subscription which automatically sets lease days and archive days on the deployment / VMs based on the current date + the lease time required.

Hi, check whether below code helps,

System.log("\n================================");

System.log("\n START: Lease Day Configuration.");

System.log("\n================================");

// vmName as string example "VM001"

var numberOfDaysToAdd = 10;

var myResources = Server.findAllForType("VCACCAFE:CatalogResource", vmName);

for each (resource in myResources){

if (resource.getName() == vmName){

catalogResourceName = vCACCAFEEntitiesFinder.getCatalogResource(cafeHost,resource.getId());

catalogResourceMachine = catalogResourceName = vCACCAFEEntitiesFinder.getCatalogResource(cafeHost, catalogResourceName.parentResourceRef.getId());

System.log("catalogResourceMachine = " +catalogResourceMachine);

}

}

var operations = catalogResourceMachine.getOperations();

for each (op in operations){

System.log(op.getName());

if (String(op.getName()) == "Change Lease"){

System.log(op.getName());

operation = op;

System.log("operation = " +operation);

}

}

//System.log (operation.getName() + " for machine resource " + catalogResourceMachine.getName() + " was selected.");

var newLeaseDate = new Date();

newLeaseDate.setDate(newLeaseDate.getDate() + numberOfDaysToAdd);

System.log("Setting new lease date to " + newLeaseDate);

var myvCACCAFEDateTimeLiteral = new vCACCAFEDateTimeLiteral(newLeaseDate);

var inputs = new Properties();

inputs.put("provider-ExpirationDate", myvCACCAFEDateTimeLiteral);

//var result = System.getModule("vra.nus.action").requestResourceAction(operation,inputs);

var result = System.getModule("com.vmware.library.vcaccafe.request").requestResourceAction(operation,inputs);

System.log("result =" +result);

System.log("\n==============================");

System.log("\n END: Lease Day Configuration.");

System.log("\n==============================");
