vCO 5.5.1 api action execution

Jump to solution

I see on the info listed at VMware released vCenter Orchestrator 5.5.1 there is a note about being able to execute actions from the vCO api.

There are a few REST API new calls in 5.5.1

One noticeable new features is that you can start a vCO action through the REST API:

  • POST /actions/{actionId}/executions Runs an action with given ID
  • POST /actions/{categoryName}/{actionName}/executions Runs an action with given category and name

In my actual install of 5.5.1 however I don't seem to be able to find this API feature at all. Are the notes here wrong or am I looking in the wrong place?

I have checked and it is my mistake . This feature has been implemented on a build that was a few days after the 5.5.1 GA. I am sorry about that. When I checked I did it on the worng appliance.

Sorry.

Note that I did not use this feature when I wrote the article. I did notice it was new in the online API doc.

REST API for executing actions is part of REST API enhancements we are doing for vCAC 6.1 so, yes, they are not included in 5.5.1.
