To configure a menu operation, you create an operation configuration file and install it in the Model Manager.


The operation configuration file is required for menu operation workflows. It specifies the aspects of the custom menu option in the vCloud Automation Center console such as the display text, which roles have access to the option, and the machine states for which the option is available.


You install an operation in the Model Manager by using the CloudUtil command-line utility.

If the menu operation is intended to be used in the service catalog, it must be registered with the service catalog so that it can be entitled to users. Register New Menu Operations with the Service Catalog.
