OvfExtraConfig

The ExtraConfig structure contains the information about a vmw:ExtraConfig element which can be used to specify configuration settings that are transferred directly to the .vmx file. The behavior of the vmw:ExtraConfig element is similar to the extraConfig property of the VirtualMachineConfigSpec object in the VMware vSphere API. Thus, the same restrictions apply, such as you cannot set values that could otherwise be set with other properties in the VirtualMachineConfigSpec object. See the VMware vSphere API reference for details on this. vmw:ExtraConfig elements may occur as direct child elements of a VirtualHardwareSection, or as child elements of individual virtual hardware items.

See LibraryItem.deploy and LibraryItem.filter.
