You create custom property definitions that determine how the custom property appears in
vRealize Automation. You can validate the custom property in a test blueprint before adding it to your production blueprints.
Create a Property Definition You can create property definitions to allow for additional levels of vRealize Automation customization. When you create a property definition, you specify a data type for the property, for example a string or a boolean type.
Create a Custom Property That Validates Against a Regular Expression You create custom property definition that evaluates a regular expression when you want service catalog users to provide validated data on the catalog request form.
Create a vRealize Orchestrator Action Custom Property Definition You create a custom property definition that includes a vRealize Orchestrator action so that you can add the custom property to a blueprint. The action runs when the service catalog user is configuring the custom property in the request form. The action retrieves the data that is displayed in the form.
Bind Custom Properties to Create a Parent-Child Relationship To create a parent-child relationship between custom properties, you bind the parent to the child. When you add the parent and child custom properties to a blueprint, the requesting user selects a value for the parent property. The selected parent value determines the possible values for the child property.
