Mappings: Virtual Resource


 

This section shows the product mapping, where a Virtual Resource is matched to a Product Label on a purchase in CloudBilling (see figure 1). This mechanism is intended to allow the products in CloudBilling to be addressed differently than the default values. For example, when in CloudBilling a Media product already exists, this feature can be used to change the Product Label of Media purchases generated by the VMware Agent to distinguish between the products in CloudBilling.

The listing on any of the properties can be sorted by clicking the column name. Clicking the column name toggles between sorting ascending and descending.
