By default, using the Orchestrator client to search for objects through a plug-in returns 20 objects at a time. You can modify the plug-in configuration file to increase the number of objects that are returned.

You must have installed a plug-in in the Orchestrator server.


Navigate to the plug-in configuration folder on the Orchestrator server system.

This folder contains an XML configuration file for each plug-in you have installed in the Orchestrator server.



If you installed Orchestrator with the vCenter Server installer

Go to install_directory\VMware\Infrastructure\Orchestrator\app-server\server\vmo\conf\plugins.

If you installed the standalone version of Orchestrator

Go to install_directory\VMware\Orchestrator\app-server\server\vmo\conf\plugins.


Open the XML configuration file of the plug-in for which you want to change the number of search results.


Add the following line to the XML configuration file for the plug-in.

<entry key="ch.dunes.database.fetch-limit">50</entry>

This line sets the number of search results to return to 50.


Save the XML configuration file.


(Optional) Repeat Step 2 through Step 4 for each plug-in to modify.


Restart the Orchestrator server.

You increased the number of search results Orchestrator displays for a particular plug-in.
