call workflow from within vSphere client?

Is there an easy way to call a workflow from within the vSphere client?

For example, I have a workflow that creates a VM and does a few other things (like send an email, etc...).

I want to call that workflow from the vSphere client where it prompts me for the required data (vm name, etc...).

Is there an easy way to do this?

thx.

Hi,

Their is no easy way to do that right now.

You can use a WebView or the Web Operator to access workflows from a vSphere client plugin.

I have not tested this yet, but it seems you can easily define a vSphere client plug-in using XML files that will point to a web page (or a web view). I will look if we already have some sort of samples of simple webview.
