When you create actions on VMs also consider the following constraints.

  • User constraintse.g. allocation limits
  • Platform constraints: e.g. to create an instance, the VM must be deployed and powered off 
  • Hypervisor constraints: e.g. when using hot reconfigure on ESXi, you cannot decrement CPU or RAM

For the API, note that you can request the JSON schema for each action plan entry type from the API.
