VMFilterSpec

The VM.FilterSpec structure contains fields used to filter the results when listing virtual machines (see VM.list). If multiple fields are specified, only virtual machines matching all of the fields match the filter.


Properties

Required Property Name Type Description
optional clusters array of string

Clusters that must contain the virtual machine for the virtual machine to match the filter. If unset or empty, virtual machines in any cluster match the filter. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must contain identifiers for the resource type: ClusterComputeResource. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will contain identifiers for the resource type: ClusterComputeResource.

optional datacenters array of string

Datacenters that must contain the virtual machine for the virtual machine to match the filter. If unset or empty, virtual machines in any datacenter match the filter. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must contain identifiers for the resource type: Datacenter. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will contain identifiers for the resource type: Datacenter.

optional folders array of string

Folders that must contain the virtual machine for the virtual machine to match the filter. If unset or empty, virtual machines in any folder match the filter. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must contain identifiers for the resource type: Folder. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will contain identifiers for the resource type: Folder.

optional hosts array of string

Hosts that must contain the virtual machine for the virtual machine to match the filter. If unset or empty, virtual machines on any host match the filter. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must contain identifiers for the resource type: HostSystem. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will contain identifiers for the resource type: HostSystem.

optional names array of string

Names that virtual machines must have to match the filter (see VM.Info.name). If unset or empty, virtual machines with any name match the filter.

optional power_states array of PowerState Enum

Power states that a virtual machine must be in to match the filter (see Power.Info.state. If unset or empty, virtual machines in any power state match the filter.

optional resource_pools array of string

Resource pools that must contain the virtual machine for the virtual machine to match the filter. If unset or empty, virtual machines in any resource pool match the filter. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must contain identifiers for the resource type: ResourcePool. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will contain identifiers for the resource type: ResourcePool.

optional vms array of string

Identifiers of virtual machines that can match the filter. If unset or empty, virtual machines with any identifier match the filter. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must contain identifiers for the resource type: VirtualMachine. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will contain identifiers for the resource type: VirtualMachine.
