I am getting "System exception" Error while calling Resource Action on existing deployment.

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I would like to add a new Action to my deployments. For example "Add VM to Backup bla bla"....

I created a workflow on vRO.

Both vRA and vRO versions are 7.5

Then I created Resource Action on vRA and published it.

What backup product are you trying to integrate with? What does your workflow contain? You're looking in the wrong place for logs. First check Administration -> Logs. If the vRO workflow isn't even getting invoked, then you've set up the XaaS incorrectly and so we'd need to see that.

Backup is a just example. I need to add any vRO workflow as an action. Above you can see the workflow that I want to add as action.

I have read a lot of article about Resource Action and done my configurations according to this articles. My vRO endpoint configuration and External vRO configuration is correct. Already i designed another XaaS blueprint and it is working. Also, I created dynamic combobox which getting some values from vRO. I think that vRO and vRA configuration is working correctly.

I checked Administrator > Log and i noticed these errors ;

catalina.out will always be your best place to check if a form doesn't load. It will point you in the direction of the issue.

Hi All,

In my case I saw the vCenter endpoints already configured in vRO 7.6 but the exception still occured (weird).

The solution was to reconfigure the vCenter endpoints from vRO.
