Is there a way to Start a VCAC Clone from VCO?

Is there a way to Start a VCAC Clone from VCO?

I Have a running VM in Production that I want to clone to Test. I'm using NSX.

So, I want to "Push XaaS" a button in vCAC, got this...Collect appropriate information  and execute a VCO workflow that would clone  the VM, here is where I have trouble(where is this function), and put it on the right network(I know how to do this in VCO).

I think it should be possible using the vCAC REST API, triggered by the vCO Plugin for vCAC  Cafe.

Have a look at this http://elasticskies.com/using-vcac-rest-apis-part-2/ to get started, it should be possible to modify the request not to destroy but to clone the machine.

Otherwise you always can implement the logic on vCO / vCenter level, means vCO workflows that clone the VM in vcenter, then import it to vCAC. This workflows than can be added as 2nd day operation to the vCAC UI.

Cheers,

Joerg
