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


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, decide whether to allow inputs that delete and re-create resources. To learn which properties re-create a resource, follow the schema link at vRealize Automation Cloud resource property schema.

For information on how to create inputs, see User input in vRealize Automation Cloud requests.

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