When designing cloud templates, vRealize Automation input parameters allow day 2 users to re-enter selections from the initial deployment request.

Caution:

Some property changes cause a resource to be re-created. For example, changing the connection_string.name under a Cloud.Service.Azure.App.Service deletes the existing resource and creates a new one.

When designing inputs to support day 2 changes, the schema Models hosted on code.vmware.com help you locate the properties that delete and re-create resources.

For information on how to create inputs, see How user input can customize a cloud template in vRealize Automation.

For a specific day 2 example, see the next section.
