Attention vCO users, developers and Administrators!

We have just added a new section to the vCO Team Website for Frequently Asked Questions in the format of Q & A. We've broken the section out into multiple Categories and begun populating the categories with some common Questions we have encountered over the last few years.

If you're on an RSS reader, the Q & A section is separate and has it's own feed here: http://www.vcoteam.info/question-answer/rss.html

Stop in and take a look. Feel free to submit your own questions for our experts to answer!

Thank you!

Although vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) has provided API documentation built-in to the server, it was static content that could not be quickly used for tests or building queries. When a product provides a nice API explorer that not only tells you the available urls and basic docs, but also provides a web-based UI that allows you to quickly build up custom calls and shows you the generated content, the consumption and integration time for developers is reduced considerably. This article will provide a brief introduction to Orchestrator's latest API Documentation feature: Swagger !

Last week I was member of a roundtable for designing SAP application delivery. The main things they discussed about were VM templates and their clones. SAP has an own application abstraction layer (ACC - adaptive computing controller) which hosts an API. With this knowledge I designed a little whiteboard workflow with the vCenter Orchestrator as clone intelligence and automation instance for future release management.

This category of articles will be dedicated to Home Labs :)
