The Orchestrator API exposes the API of all plugged-in technologies, including the entire vCenter Server API. The Orchestrator API Explorer helps you find the objects you need to add to scripts.


Open the API Explorer.


  1. Enter the name or part of a name of an object in the API Explorer Search text box and click Search.

    To limit your search to a particular object type, uncheck or check the Scripting Class, Attributes & Methods and Types & Enumerations check boxes.

  2. Double-click the element in the proposed list.

    The object is highlighted in the hierarchical list on the left. A documentation pane under the hierarchical list presents information about the object.

What to do next

Use the objects you find in scripts.
