Create Vm Template Library Items

Create Vm Template Library Items

Creates a library item in content library from a virtual machine. This operation creates a library item in content library whose content is a virtual machine template created from the source virtual machine, using the supplied create specification. The virtual machine template is stored in a newly created library item. if you do not have all of the privileges described as follows:

  • Operation execution requires System.Read.
  • The resource com.vmware.content.Library referenced by the attribute LibraryItems.CreateSpec.library requires ContentLibrary.AddLibraryItem.
  • The resource VirtualMachine referenced by the attribute LibraryItems.CreateSpec.source-vm requires System.Read.

string
source_vm
Required

Identifier of the source virtual machine to create the library item from. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must be an identifier for the resource type: VirtualMachine. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will be an identifier for the resource type: VirtualMachine.

string
name
Required

Name of the library item.

string
description
Optional

Description of the library item. If unset, the newly created library item has the same description as the source virtual machine.

string
library
Required

Identifier of the library in which the new library item should be created. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.content.Library. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.content.Library.

vm_home_storage
Optional

The LibraryItems.CreateSpecVmHomeStorage structure defines the storage specification for a virtual machine template's configuration and log files.

disk_storage
Optional

The LibraryItems.CreateSpecDiskStorage structure defines the storage specification for a virtual machine template's disks.

object
disk_storage_overrides
Optional

Storage specification for individual disks in the virtual machine template. This is specified as a mapping between disk identifiers in the source virtual machine and their respective storage specifications. If both LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage-overrides and LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage are unset, the virtual machine template's disks are placed in the default storage backing associated with the library specified by LibraryItems.CreateSpec.library. If LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage-overrides is unset and LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage is specified, all of the virtual machine template's disks are created with the storage spec specified by LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage.

If LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage-overrides is specified and LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage is unset, disks with identifiers that are not in LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage-overrides are placed in the default storage backing associated with the library specified by LibraryItems.CreateSpec.library.

If both LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage-overrides and LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage are specified, disks with identifiers that are not in LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage-overrides are created with the storage spec specified by LibraryItems.CreateSpec.disk-storage.

When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the key in the field map must be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.vcenter.vm.hardware.Disk. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the key in the field map will be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.vcenter.vm.hardware.Disk.

placement
Required

The LibraryItems.CreatePlacementSpec structure contains information used to place a virtual machine template onto resources within the vCenter inventory.

Authentication
This operation uses the following authentication methods.

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.

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.

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.
