NSX-vRO Plugin 1.0.1 Release Notes

NSX-vRO Plugin 1.0.1 | 4 December 2014 | Build 2243107

What’s in the Release Notes

What’s New

The NSX - vRO plugin 1.0.1 was created to support NSX version 6.1.x. The major fix over the NSX - vRO plugin 1.0.0 (first release of the plugin) is to support pagination. The version 1.0.1 plugin supports paged response from NSX, rather than a flat list of objects. For example, if a large number of Security Groups were returned to the 1.0.0 plugin, it could lead to exceeding the maximum permissible length of the JSON response).
