XAAS blueprint to deploy VRA blueprint - Identify AWS Key Values

Hi,

I have managed make a XAAS blueprint to deploy a VRA Blueprint, but im getting stuck at the below when deploying.

In my reservation if i select the various AWS Security Groups they all get added to a machine if i leave the section blank, so when i try to manipulate the json data to select one i get the below error.

(com.vmware.library.vcaccafe.request/requestCatalogItemWithProvisioningRequest) Error in (Dynamic Script Module name : requestCatalogItemWithProvisioningRequest#0) [Rest Composite Exception]:  ( [Rest Error]: {Status code: 400}, {Error code: 20117} , {Error Source: null}, {Error Msg: The data specified within the request is invalid.}, {System Msg: The data specified within the request is invalid.} )  ( [Rest Error]: {Status code: 400}, {Error code: 11011} , {Error Source: null}, {Error Msg: The value for the 'amazon_securityGroups' field is not a MultipleLiteral but the field is defined as MultiValued.}, {System Msg: The value for the field id amazon_securityGroups is not a MultipleLiteral but the field is defined as MultiValued.} )

Below is the code of json that i need to fill in(i need it filled in like this because this is how vra sends it when i inspected it.)

{"key":"amazon_provisionInto", "value":{"type":"string", "value":"subnet"}}

{"key":"amazon_securityGroups", "value":{"type":"multiple", "elementTypeId":"INTEGER", "items":[{"type":"integer", "value":805}]}}

below is my json code

// this code works

json.app.data.amazon_provisionInto = "subnet";

System.log(json.app.data.amazon_provisionInto);

json.app.data.amazon_subnet_id = 18;

//this code doesnt work

json.app.data.amazon_securityGroups = 805;

System.log(json.app.data.amazon_securityGroups);

I have added the subnet in a VPC code and the subnet id code to show code of mine that works.

Anyone have any ideas as to why the AWS security group one fails?

Can you try making it an array of integers? Try setting [805] as the value.

I have had success using an array of integers i.e. json.app.data.amazon_securityGroups = [805, 807];  However, I can't figure out how to determine these identifiers that vRA uses internally.  I can query AWS and get the list of Security Groups no problem.  However, I don't know how to either translate those values to something vRA will recognize or better for me, pass in the value as the AWS identifier sg-abc12345 and get vRA to understand and apply the correct security group.
