Property

Description

AD.Lookup.Department

Specifies the cost center value that is included in a notification email sent to approvers. This property value must be specified in the blueprint.

agent.download.url

When using port forwarding, specifies the private IP address of your Amazon AWS tunnel machine and port for your software agent file, for example https://Private_IP:1443/software-service/resources/nobel-agent.jar.

You can add this property, in combination with software.agent.service.url and software.ebs.url, to a reservation or the compute resource endpoint. You can also use this property to specify a private address and port when using PAT or NAT translation and port forwarding.

amazon.AmazonEC2Config.ServiceURL

Specifies the Amazon configuration service URL for Amazon GovCloud, for example amazon.AmazonEC2Config.ServiceURL=https://ec2.us-gov-west-1.amazonaws.com.

amazon.ElasticLoadBalancingConfig.ServiceURL

Specifies the Amazon load balancer configuration service URL for Amazon GovCloud, for example amazon.ElasticLoadBalancingConfig.ServiceURL=https://elasticloadbalancing.us-gov-west-1.amazonaws.com.

Amazon.ElasticLoadBalancer.Names

Assigns machines that are provisioned by a blueprint to the elastic load balancers that match the specified values. This property is valid for vSphere, Amazon, and Hyper-V configurations.

Amazon.Extensions.UserData

Specifies the name of an Amazon user data script to be run during the first boot cycle when an instance is launched. The property supports string substitution from other custom properties to allow for dynamic requests. You can add the property either to the overall vRealize Automation blueprint or to an AWS machine component in the blueprint.

For information about Amazon user data scripts, see the Running Commands on Your Linux Instance at Launch topic in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud product documentation.

You can pass a series of custom properties to the Amazon.Extensions.UserData property by including them in a file whose name begins with Amazon.CustomProperty.Shell.

amazon.IAMInstanceProfile.ARN

Specifies the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) instance profile Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) when requesting an AWS instance. When you add this property, for example amazon.IAMInstanceProfile.ARN = IAM Instance Profile ARN(s) value, to a blueprint and then request provisioning from the catalog, the provisioned Amazon virtual machine or instance contains the specified IAM role. The DEM reads and includes the property specification, for example amazon.IAMInstanceProfile.ARN = IAM Instance Profile ARN(s) value, in the Amazon RunInstanceRequest workflow.

Amazon.Instance.Id

Specifies the Amazon instance ID of a machine provisioned on an Amazon EC2 endpoint. This property is valid for vSphere and Amazon configurations.

Amazon.Instance.GroupName

Specifies the name of the existing AWS placement group for the associated Amazon endpoint. The placement group must exist in the target availability zone prior to vRealize Automation data collection of the endpoint.

Add the Amazon.Instance.GroupName custom property to a blueprint to specify which AWS placement group is used during machine provisioning.

Amazon.elasticIpAddress.ipAddress

Specifies the Amazon IP address where ipAddress is the specific IP address to assign to the instance.

Amazon.Placement.Tenancy

Set to = dedicated to specify that the AWS connection be specific to a dedicated tenant. This property is valid for use with VPC subnets.

Amazon.Storage.iops

Specifies the input/output operations per second (IOPS) for the associated storage device.

Currently, this property is only supported when the Amazon.Storage.Type property value is io1.

For more information, see Amazon EBS volume types documentation.

Add the Amazon.Storage.iops custom property to a blueprint to specify the IOPS. The io1 storage type is the only AWS storage type in which you can set IOPS.

Amazon.Storage.Type

Specifies the Amazon EBS volume type to use for disk storage relative to the associated Amazon endpoint. All disks are provisioned with the specified type. You cannot specify a different volume type for each disk.

Set the property value to one of the API Names values provided in Amazon EBS volume types documentation, for example io1 or gp2.

Add the Amazon.Storage.Type custom property to a blueprint to specify the EBS volume type to use during machine provisioning.

Azure.Windows.ScriptPath

Specifies the path to the downloaded script that configures tunneling for Windows-based systems. Update the path as appropriate for your deployment.

Azure.Linux.ScriptPath

Specifies the path to the downloaded script that configures tunneling for Linux-based systems. Update the path as appropriate for your deployment.

agent.download.url

Specifies the URL for the VPN agent on your deployment. The URL format is https:// Private_IP:1443/software-service//resources/noble-agent.jar
