BOSH VCloud Cloud Provider Interface

Copyright (c) VMware, Inc.

Introduction

It's a BOSH CPI implementation for a vCloud Director backed infrastructure cloud. In order to target a vCloud Director instance, MicroBosh must be set to use the vCloud plugin configuration as shown below:

---
plugin: vcloud
vcds
  - url:   
    user:      
    password: 
    entities:
	  organization: 
	  virtual_datacenter: 
	  vapp_catalog: 
	  media_catalog:
	  media_storage_profile:
      vm_metadata_key:
	  description:
      control: #optional parameters
        wait_max: #optional parameters     

Note that vCloud Director version 5.1 or newer is required.

Example

This is a sample of how vCloud Director specific properties are used in a BOSH deployment manifest:
