You can use the sample workflows from the Converter workflow category to test the integration between the PowerShell plug-in and PowerCLI. To test the integration, PowerCLI must be installed on the PowerShell host.

The Converter sample workflows demonstrate the conversion functionality available in the plug-in.


The PowerShell plug-in does not support all types that are available in PowerCLI and the vCenter Server plug-in. Unsupported types return an exception.

You can access these workflows from Library > PowerShell > Samples > Converter on the Workflows view in the Orchestrator client.
