cis tagging category: create spec

The create_spec structure is used to create a category.

Use the create operation to create a category defined by the create specification.

Representation:

{
    "associable_types"[
        "string",
        "string"
    ],
    "category_id""obj-103",
    "name""string",
    "description""string",
    "cardinality""SINGLE"
}

Attributes:

Name Type Description
Required
name string The display name of the category.

description string The description of the category.

cardinality string The associated cardinality (SINGLE, MULTIPLE) of the category.

Defines the number of tags in a category that can be assigned to an object. Value is one of:
SINGLE: An object can only be assigned one of the tags in this category. For example, if a category is "Operating System", then different tags of this category would be "Windows", "Linux", and so on. In this case a VM object can be assigned only one of these tags and hence the cardinality of the associated category here is single.
MULTIPLE: An object can be assigned several of the tags in this category. For example, if a category is "Server", then different tags of this category would be "AppServer", "DatabaseServer" and so on. In this case a VM object can be assigned more than one of the above tags and hence the cardinality of the associated category here is multiple.

associable_types string[] Object types to which this category's tags can be attached.

Optional
category_id string This attribute was added in vSphere API 6.7.

Optional. If unset an identifier will be generated by the server. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.cis.tagging.Category. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.cis.tagging.Category.
