    How to find request id after executing VM Action on VM using vRA REST API

    ramprasadram Lurker

      Hi Everyone.


      I'm trying to find out request id of VM Action (reboot, poweroff or poweron etc) when triggered on VM using vRA REST API but looks like vRA API [

      POST/api/consumer/resources/{resourceId}/actions/{resourceActionId}/requests] doesn't return the request id of VM action executed on VM. It returns  resouceId, actionId but not request id. Following is response body documented in VMware API 7.x Guide which doesn't have request id.


      "resourceId": "3fa85f64-5717-4562-b3fc-2c963f66afa6",
      "reasons": "string",
      "data": {
      "additionalProp1": {},
      "additionalProp2": {},
      "additionalProp3": {}
      "actionId": "3fa85f64-5717-4562-b3fc-2c963f66afa6",
      "description": "string"


      Also, I have verified executed VM Action using vRA UI portal, and I can see request id in the vRA UI portal URL for each VM action which are executed on VM. I believe the same should be also possible using vRA APIs and should be able to get request id of VM Action.


      I need your help please check if you have any idea. Thanks in Advance.
