The Orchestrator API exposes all of the objects and functions of the technologies, that Orchestrator accesses through its plug-ins, as JavaScript objects and methods.

About this task

For example, you can access JavaScript implementations of the vCenter Server API through the Orchestrator API, to include vCenter operations in scripted elements that you create. You can also access JavaScript implementations of objects from all of the other plug-ins you install in the Orchestrator server. If you create a custom plug-in to a third-party application, you map the objects from its API to JavaScript objects that the Orchestrator API then exposes.
