You can import an action by using the Orchestrator REST API.

Before you begin

The action 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 custom code that defines the properties of the action.

Procedure

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

Results

If the POST request is successful, you receive the status code 202.
