You can import a plug-in by using the Orchestrator REST API.

Before you begin

The plug-in binary content should be available as multi-part content. For details, see RFC 2387.

About this task

Depending on the library of your REST client application, you can use a custom code that defines the properties of the plug-in.

Note:

You cannot import a plug-in if a plug-in with the same name is already installed.

Procedure

  1. In a REST client application, add request headers to define the properties of the plug-in that you want to import.
  2. Make a POST request at the URL of the plug-in objects:
    POST http://{orchestrator_host}:{port}/vco/api/plugins/

Results

If the POST request is successful, you receive the status code 200.
