By using resource mappings, you can publish
vRealize Orchestrator workflows as resource actions for managing items provisioned by sources other than Advanced Service Designer, for example, by IaaS or Application Services.
Extending Operations Checklist Resource actions for items provisioned outside of Advanced Service Designer require a resource mapping as the input parameter. Because some resource mappings are included with your vRealize Automation installation, the steps required to extend operations on resources provisioned outside of Advanced Service Designer depend on the type of resource you want to extend.
Resource Mapping Script Actions and Workflows You can use the provided resource mappings for vSphere virtual machines, vCloud Director virtual machines, and vCloud Director vApps, or you can create custom vRealize Orchestrator script actions or workflows to map additional vRealize Automation catalog resource types to vRealize Orchestrator inventory types.
Create a Resource Mapping vRealize Automation provides resource mappings for vSphere virtual machines, vCloud Director virtual machines, and vCloud Director vApps. You can create additional resource mappings for other types of catalog resources.
Create a Resource Action for an Item Provisioned by Another Source You can create resource actions to extend the operations that the consumers of the catalog items can perform on items provisioned by sources other than the Advanced Service Designer.
Publish a Resource Action The newly created resource action is in draft state, and you must publish the resource action.
Assign an Icon to a Resource Action After you create and publish a resource action, you can edit it and assign an icon to the action.
