You can create property groups to collect properties into a single unit.

Property groups are logical and reusable groups of properties, that can include property definitions that you create or custom properties that are supplied, that are designed to simplify the process of adding properties to blueprints or other vRealize Automation elements for which they are available. They provide a means by which logical groupings of properties can be added more efficiently than by adding the properties individually.

A property group typically contains properties that are commonly used together. For example, you can create a property group named WimImagingProperties that contains properties commonly used for WIM-based provisioning:

  • Image.ISO.Location

  • Image.ISO.Name

  • Image.Network.Password

  • Image.Network.User

  • Image.WIM.Index

  • Image.WIM.Name

  • Image.WIM.Path

You can also create a property group for vCloud Air or vCloud Director machine provisioning that contains the following properties:

  • VirtualMachine.Network0.Name

  • VCloud.Template.MakeIdenticalCopy

  • VMware.SCSI.Type

  • Sysprep.Identification.DomainAdmin

  • Sysprep.Identification.DomainAdminPassword

  • Sysprep.Identification.JoinDomain
