Clone a VM into Datastore Cluster and host cluster using Workflows in vRealize Orchestrator

Hi there,

I'm new to vRA and vRO world.

i am trying to clone a virtual machine and using Clone Virtual machine, no customization workflow which was provided by VMware in Library/Clone.

i want it to clone the Virtual machine on datastore cluster and host cluster instead of giving inputs of Host system and Datastore.

Is there any way to do that ?

Any idea would be really appreciated

Thanks a lot in advance

I started cobbling together workflows to do this but got distracted and never finished.  I haven't verified if they have working examples in the latest plugin but assuming you are using a recent version it sounds like they don't.  This seems like such an obvious need I don't know why they don't have some canned workflows.  It does involve getting a deployment plan then submitting your request along with the plan.  There are some samples in this forum somewhere so search around and you can also take a look at the vCenter api documentation.  The vRO plugin should work basically the same way.
