You can configure the script or redefine existing properties for a custom task version. To preserve the original custom task version you can create a copy and modify the copied version.


If a custom task is used in a deployment profile to customize an application deployment, the custom task cannot be deleted.

Verify that your user account has the ROLE_CATALOG_ADMIN catalog administrator role assigned to it.

Verify whether you must add items to the operating systems and descriptive tag lists. See Add Operating Systems to the Catalog and Add Tags to the Catalog.

If a script in a task requires access to URLs from outside the corporate firewall, configure the applicable services and application components to use a proxy. See Configure vCloud Application Director to Use a Proxy for External URLs.

Familiarize yourself with the basic concepts of defining and configuring component properties and actions. See Developing vCloud Application Director Components.


On the vCloud Application Director title bar, click the drop-down menu and select Catalog > Tasks.

Open the custom task version and click Copy in the toolbar.

Change the version number, update the description, and if needed update the operating system.

The version number and description differentiates the new custom task from the parent version.
