Hello,

 

I am using vRO 7.4 and installed Ipam 4.3 plugin to vRO. I am developing some workflows about vRA and now i need something about infoblox. I can do a lot of thing with infoblox plugin in vRO but could not update EA. I need to update isAvailable EA as "Yes" or "No". I have searched of all action object and functions in vro but could not be success.. Is there a way to do this?

Extensible attributes (extattrs) are are associated with objects. If you are looking to update these for specific objects, you can do this via a RESTful API workflow.

 

For examples on how to update an extensible attribute for an object, you may find our RESTful API guide (available for download via the Help Panel in the Infoblox Grid Manager GUI), as well as our RESTful API Reference Guide (https://www.infoblox.com/wp-content/uploads/infoblox-deployment-infoblox-rest-api.pdf). In the RESTful API Reference Guide, this starts on page 39.

 

Regards,

Tony

The Orchestrator 5.1 configuration interface uses a secure connection to communicate with the vSphere Update Manager server. After you install vSphere Update Manager plug-in 5.1, you need to import the required SSL certificate from a URL or file.

Most operations with the plugin involve adding and removing objects. If an EA is added to an object managed by the plugin and a workflow is called to delete that object, any EA's saved to that object would be lost.
