To deploy content from an existing vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager endpoint, you make a POST request.

The following procedure shows how to deploy content to a vRealize Orchestrator endpoint. An example shows how to capture, test, and deploy content to a vRealize Orchestrator endpoint using a single command.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that the appliance name and fully qualified domain name of the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager instance are available.
  • Verify that the URL variable is assigned.
    url='https://LCM-Hostname'
  • Verify that the content package you want to deploy has been added to vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager.

Procedure

  1. Assign the reference ID of an existing vRealize Orchestrator endpoint to a variable name.
    vROEndpoint = '<referenceID>'
  2. To deploy captured content to the vRealize Orchestrator endpoint, execute the following command.
    curl -X POST \
      '$url/lcm/cms/api/v1/contents/pipelines' \
      -H 'Accept: application/json' \
      -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
      -d '{
       "stages":[
          {
             "comment":"test-deploy",
             "endpointIds":["{$vROEndpoint}"],
             "tagNames":[],
             "contents":[],
             "contentVersionIds":["db118fe4-7ad2-42b2-895b-f53195b8a361"],
             "stage":"DEPLOY",
             "deployLatest":true,
             "includeDependencies":true,
             "deployAllFiles":true,
             "stopDeployOnFirstFailure":true
          }
       ]
    }'| jq "."
  3. To track the status of the request, examine the response.
    {
       "requestId":"f8951a41-b811-4645-81bb-3eb1b09a25cc",
       "status":"IN_PROGRESS"
    }
     

Example: Perform multiple operations with a single command

The following example shows how to capture, test, and deploy content to a vRealize Orchestrator endpoint with a single command.
$ vROEndpoint = '<referenceID>'
$ curl -X POST \
  '$url/lcm/cms/api/v1/contents/pipelines' \
  -H 'Accept: application/json' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
