Neither 'VMPSMasterWorkflow32.Requested - PRE'  nor any other ESB state gives you any chance to override deployment-related properties. You actually have just 2 options:

1) Define property "_deploynentName" on a blueprint-level --> can modify it BEFORE submitting request (through vRO/end-user input).

2) Use XaaS blueprints - here you can override entire request and modify it before any vRA magic happened (and good luck with it!).

Literally nothing you can do for already existing deployment, IMHO.

Thanks for reply.

I did exactly same to try if it works, added _deploynentName in custom properties and displayed it on request page. But that is not sufficient.

In option 1 you mentioned about modifying it through vRO before submitting request. How that can be done?

Thanks

Well, you defined _deploymentName in a "properties dictionary". Here you can use external value --> vRO Action to create your own name:

Try this approach, i'm not sure that it will work in this particular case, but at least it is something...
