Adding or Updating a vRealize Automation machine’s custom property

Posted by

Recently I’ve had a few people ask how to add or update a custom property on an already deployed vRealize Automation (vRA) machine. Several people unregistered the machine using CloudClient, updated a blueprint with the new custom property and then bulk imported the machine back into vRA. It’s actually much easier than that.

  3. The machine you want to modify

  2. Select New
  3. Enter a new custom property
  4. Select the green check
  5. Submit
