You must publish a custom entity so users from other VMware Cloud Director tenants or service providers can run workflows using the custom entity instances as input parameters.


This operation requires the Custom Entity rights to be included in the predefined user role.


  1. In the top navigation bar, click Libraries and under Services, select Custom Entity Definitions.
    The list of custom entities appears in a card view of 12 items per page, sorted by names alphabetically. Each card shows the name of the custom entity, the vRealize Orchestrator type to which the entity is mapped, the type of the entity, and a description, if available.
  2. In the card of the selected custom entity, select Actions > Publish.
    A new dialog opens.
  3. Choose whether you want to publish the custom entity definition to service providers, all tenants, or only to selected tenants.
  4. Click Save to confirm the change.
    The custom entity definition becomes available to the selected parties.
