Create Cluster Configuration Drafts

Create Cluster Configuration Drafts

Create a new draft with the given values. If a configuration is supplied in the spec, it will be used as the initial value. Otherwise, the current desired configuration will be used as the initial value. The Drafts.Metadata.owner field will be set to the caller's user ID and the Drafts.Metadata.parent-id will be set to the current commit ID for the cluster. if you do not have all of the privileges described as follows:

  • Operation execution requires VcIntegrity.ClusterConfiguration.Modify.
  • The resource ClusterComputeResource referenced by the parameter cluster requires VcIntegrity.ClusterConfiguration.Modify.

Path Parameters
string
cluster
Required

Identifier of the cluster The parameter must be an identifier for the resource type: ClusterComputeResource.


Request Body
Optional
{
    "config": "string",
    "image_reference_host": "string"
}
string
config
Optional

The initial configuration for the draft. If not specified, the current desired configuration for the cluster will be used.

string
image_reference_host
Optional

The host to use as the desired image for the cluster when VLCM is not in use. If not specified, the previously used reference host will be carried over. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must be an identifier for the resource type: HostSystem. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will be an identifier for the resource type: HostSystem.

Authentication
This operation uses the following authentication methods.

The result will be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.esx.settings.draft.

Returns string of type(s) application/json
Operation doesn't return any data structure

messages
Required

Stack of one or more localizable messages for human error consumers. The message at the top of the stack (first in the list) describes the error from the perspective of the operation the client invoked.

Each subsequent message in the stack describes the "cause" of the prior message.

object
data
Optional

Data to facilitate clients responding to the operation reporting a standard error to indicating that it was unable to complete successfully. Operations may provide data that clients can use when responding to errors. Since the data that clients need may be specific to the context of the operation reporting the error, different operations that report the same error may provide different data in the error. The documentation for each each operation will describe what, if any, data it provides for each error it reports.

The ArgumentLocations, FileLocations, and TransientIndication structures are intended as possible values for this field. DynamicID may also be useful as a value for this field (although that is not its primary purpose). Some services may provide their own specific structures for use as the value of this field when reporting errors from their operations.

Some operations will not set this field when reporting errors.

Optional

Enumeration of all standard errors. Used as discriminator in protocols that have no standard means for transporting the error type, e.g. REST.
