When creating a simple workflow to retrieve the VLAN ID from a distributed virtual port group always returns a 0.
portGroup = [input value of type VC:DistributedVirtualPortgroup]
This behavior was not present in previous 5.5 releases.

Thank you, this is now working again.
Can you please provide any additional information as to what side effects disabling this might have?
Is the inventory service broken? is there a misconfiguration or a remediation step that must be done?
vCenter plugin collects data using two different methods one is property collector and the other is Inventory service.
Unfortunately Inventory Service does not provide real time updates for certain properties and issues like above can be experienced.
Using the Inventory Service was targeting to improve the performance but unfortunately but at the price that some data might not be real time.
There should be no functional implications if this flag is set to false.
