You can run a workflow to add an XSD schema to a REST host from the plug-in inventory.

The XSD schema describes the XML documents that are used as input and output content from Web services. By associating such a schema with a host, you can specify the XML element that is required as an input when you are generating a workflow from a REST operation.


  • Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Orchestrator Client as an administrator.
  • Verify that you have a connection to a REST host from the Inventory view.
