In a previous article, I stepped through the process of working with vRealize Orchestrator's (vRO) REST API using the RestClient add-on for FireFox. This was before I was introduced to my new favorite REST client: POSTMAN! (@postmanclient) In this article, I'll provide a little detail on an approach you can use to improve your work with REST APIs and consuming them with Orchestrator's REST plug-in. Throughout the article, I will use a FreeNAS 9.3.x Virtual Appliance as my target endpoint since it is freely available, quick to setup, and has nice API documentation. Please note that the technique described here can be used for any API that Postman can access!
In the previous article I walk through step by step to create a plug-in object type leveraging the Plug-in Generator version 2.
In this article I will demonstrate one of the new feature of this version 2 : Create a child object type.
