    Create Rule with valueType "Substring" via API

    evilending Lurker

      Hi everyone

       

      I'm trying to create a Rule via the API. According to the documentation, the body needs to be provided as follows:

       

      <rule xmlns="http://www.vmware.com/UM">
      <vcServerId>1</vcServerId>
      <customerName>CustomerTest</customerName>
      <objectType>VM</objectType>
      <valueType>Unique ID</valueType>
      <value>vm-21</value>
      </rule>
      

       

      This works fine for rules with valuetype "Unique ID". But i need to create a rule with the valuetype Substring and I cannot figure out, how I need to provide the body. If I send it according to the documentation i get the response that rules with valueType Substring mustn't provide a vCenter ID. If I send the body without the vcServerID Element i get the response that this is a mandatory element. If I leave it blank I get a parsing error back. Can anyone point me in the right direction? We use version 3.6.1.

       

      Thanks!
