By using Advanced Service Designer, you can create and publish a resource action to migrate an IaaS-provisioned virtual machine with vMotion.

In this scenario, you create a resource action to migrate a vSphere virtual machine with vMotion. In addition, you edit the workflow presentation by using the form designer and change the way the consumers see the action when they request it.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as a service architect.

You can create a custom resource action to allow the consumers of the service to migrate a vSphere virtual machine with vMotion after they provision the machine with IaaS.

The form of the resource action maps the vCenter Orchestrator workflow presentation. You can edit the form and define what the consumers of the resource action see when they decide to run the post-provisioning operation.

You can add a new form to the Migrate a virtual machine with vMotion resource action to define what the consumers see after they request to run the post-provisioning operation.

To use the Migrate a virtual machine with vMotion resource action as a post-provisioning operation, you must publish it.

You created and published a vCenter Orchestrator workflow as a resource action. You can navigate to Administration > Catalog Management > Actions and see the Migrate virtual machine with vMotion resource action in the list of actions. You can assign an icon to the resource action. See Assign an Icon to a Resource Action.

You also edited the presentation of the workflow and defined the look and feel of the action.

Business group managers and tenant administrators can include the Migrate a virtual machine with vMotion resource action in an entitlement. For more information about how to create and publish IaaS blueprints for virtual platforms, see IaaS Configuration for Virtual Platforms.
