Dynamic Types Plug-In Sync Issue (vRO)

In this blog post, we are going to show how to solve the Dynamic Types Issue. If you work with dynamic types, you probably have encountered synchronization issues. With the synchronization issues, the workflows or actions cannot assign values to the dynamic types of variables. Developers encounter 90% syntax 10% plugin errors but they don’t notice it.

I have developed a workflow that using the Dynamic Types and I faced sync issue. I added logging to critical point in my workflow like adding and updating line but there is no problem with my code. When I traced the problem from vRO logs, I saw a sync error.

This issue is caused by the outdated Dynamic Type plugin so If you update the plugin, the problem will disappear. This issue occurs between 1.3.0 and 1.3.3 versions. Let’s update the plugin.

Prerequisites

Download the .vmoapp file of the plug-in.

Procedure

  1. You should login to Control Center as root.
  2. Go to the Manage Plug-Ins page.
  3. Click Browse and select the .vmoapp file of the plug-in you want to install or update.
  4. Click Upload.
  5. Review the plug-in information, if applicable, accept the end-user license agreement, and click Install. The plug-in is installed or updated and the vRealize Orchestrator server service is restarted.

You can see the sync issue in vRO 7.x and vRO 8.x versions. Follow the link below for more details and plugin versions.
