The Compliance.VmComplianceInfo structure contains information about storage policy compliance associated with a virtual machine.


string as date-time
check_time Required

Date and time of the most recent compliance check.

failure_cause Required

The exception that caused the compliance check to fail. There can be more than one cause, since a policy can contain capabilities from multiple providers. If empty, it implies no failures while retrieving compliance.

policy Optional

Identifier of the storage policy associated with the virtual machine. If unset SPBM is unable to retrieve or determine the associated policy, Compliance.VmComplianceInfo.failure-cause is set in such casses. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.vcenter.StoragePolicy. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.vcenter.StoragePolicy.

status Required

The Compliance.Status enumerated type defines the storage compliance status of a virtual machine and its applicable entities.
COMPLIANT : Entity is in compliance.
NON_COMPLIANT : Entity is out of compliance.
UNKNOWN_COMPLIANCE : Compliance status of the entity is not known.
NOT_APPLICABLE : Compliance computation is not applicable for this entity because it does not have any storage requirements that apply to the datastore on which it is placed.
OUT_OF_DATE : The Compliance status becomes out-of-date when the profile associated with the entity is edited but not applied. The compliance status remains out-of-date until the edited policy is applied to the entity.
