You can use this workflow to modify a load balancer monitor.

About this task

When selecting the monitor to modify, the fields/input parameters are not pre-populated with the existing values, as vRO does not support pre-population of composite type parameters and parameters with custom data.

Whatever values you enter in the modify workflow input parameters replace the existing values of the corresponding NSX entries. This behavior is consistent with the NSX REST API.
