SovLabs Property Toolkit

The SovLabs Property Toolkit for vRealize Automation enables customers to achieve greater levels of efficiency and control through metadata management. Custom Properties are an essential feature of vRealize Automation, allowing customers to define operational, organizational, financial and application-related information on the blueprint or capture with a catalog request and store it on the VMs managed within vRealize Automation.

Custom properties are not just a popular feature of vRealize Automation. They are essential to capturing catalog request information and for extending vRealize Automation via workflow orchestration. However, until now, there was no simple method of managing custom properties on VMs after they have been provisioned. Additionally, using multiple inter-related properties to capture requester input can be tedious to setup and maintain across blueprints.

Now with the SovLabs Property Toolkit, vRealize Automation architects and admins can manage existing custom properties on VMs throughout their lifecycle. Additionally, they can create dynamic property sets or groups of properties. With dynamic property sets, each property within the set can derive its name and value based on the value of other vRA custom properties or any custom logic utilizing the SovLabs Template Engine.
