[vRA 8.2] Is it possible to return a Dynamic Type from a polyglot action

Hello,

I'm implementing some dynamic types for use in custom resources.  I'd like to create the actions using polyglot but when I return a JSON object it doesn't get converted to the expected DynamicType.

 

Is this possible or do I need a post-step which takes my JSON object and builds an instance of the dynamic type from it?

DynamicTypes is a vRO plugin. AFAIK plugins can be used only from the original JS engine. So I don't think this could work without a wrapper JS action.

Ah that's a really good point.

I'm not married to the idea of DynamicTypes - in fact I'd prefer not to use them.

I suppose what I can do is try to make a very generic action that takes JSON input, and a type, and returns a DynamicObject.  Then I can re-use that action wherever I have this use case.

 

Thanks!
