vRealize Automation Lego Brick Icon Changer
Today is the first time in 7 years I release another VMware tool. Recently on twitter I asked the question can you still not change the blue lego brick icon in vRealize Automation that is used for the root level services icon.
Tim Hynes @railroadmanuk actually corrected me and showed me in the vRA doc that you can do that now as of v7.2. It consists of a bunch of REST calls. So I went about trying to understand how to make a .Net tool to change said icon… as it was, Tim beat me with a Python script to make the change but I felt it still had merit in building a Windows tool to do the same.
So here it is. Click to download: vRA Lego Icon Changer (536 downloads)
I’M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE.
YOU NEED VRA 7.2 OR GREATER
- Load an icon into the tool that you wish to upload to vRA
- Provide vRA details
- vRA Appliance hostname or IP address
- Admin account for the default tenant vpshere.local
- Password for that admin account
- Click Upload
If you mess up there is a revert button to bring back the lego brick.
For now its not the prettiest UI but in v2 I will gloss it up… I just need feedback.
UPDATE: DON’T PANIC IF CHANGES HAVE NOT OCCURRED AS QUICKLY AS YOU LIKE. IN MY LAB I NOTICED THAT ITS NOT INSTANT AND A QUICK CLEAR OF YOUR COOKIES WILL SPEED UP THINGS!
