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.
