If you ever wanted to integrate your workflows with a database with having your database records available as part of the inventory then this plug-in will help you to do so.
Chances are that at some point you will need to read or write information from an SQL database as part of your workflows. vCenter Orchestrator provides some scripter / developper capabilities such as the JDBC plug-in and the integration with the hybernate framework. These requires quite some development and test to have a well integrated solution.
With the vCenter Orchestrator SQL plug-in allows to:
- expose in the vCO enventory your database records and to perform read, create, update, and delete operations without writing SQL statements.
- generate workflows from these operations.
