As creator of the custom property definitions that run vRealize Orchestrator actions, you test your custom properties to ensure that the correct values appear in the request form.

Before you begin

  • Add the custom property to the appropriate location in the blueprint. See Add a Custom Property to a Blueprint.

  • Verity that the blueprint is entitled to you so that you can test the custom properties in the blueprint. See Configuring vRealize Automation.

  • Log in to the vRealize Automation as a user with access to the test blueprint.


  1. Select Catalog.
  2. Select the test blueprint and click Request.
  3. On the request form, click the machine to which you added the custom property.
  4. Locate the custom property and click the drop-down arrow.

    The vRealize Orchestrator action runs and retrieves the values it is configured to display. Verify that the expected values appear.

What to do next

Add the custom property to your production blueprints where needed.
