You may already have seen the theory on how to extend vCloud Director capabilities with vCenter Orchestrator, you may even have completed the first steps to do it following this tutorial. What about having a complete real use case implementation example such as a vApp Approval, adding Windows VM in Active Directory ? It is now available.

The goal of publishing this package is to give a good starting point implementation with working examples that can be adapted for other requirements. This include setting all the AMQP configuration automatically for listening for a particular blocking task notification, converting the AMQP message to vCloud Director objects, extracting the necessary information from this object, including using the vCloud Director query service, and calling back vCloud Director to resume / cancel / fail the task.

In addition to this package we provided a walk through video.

Amazing work Chris. Really appreciate it. So far we have seen development of such self service portals with approval workflow using webviews and perspective. But we have not seen anything using VSM. Would love to see as to how that integration works. Kindly guide too on that part.
