There is no scripting API to increase version number of ResourceElement (and other versionable objects).
I've definitely wanted this functionality for configuration elements along with being able to create configuration elements.
Add me to both of these as well... (and not create configuration elements through cloud client )
OK, thanks for the responses.
qc4vmware I saw you on a thread talking about programatically creating configuration elements. That thread suggested creating resource elements instead, which is how I ended up creating them.
The customer is concerned with being able to go back to an earlier version of a Resource Element if they are being updated programatically. I've got a couple of ideas, but this was my preference.
