PowerCLI on vRO

Would be great to be able to get PowerCLI Core on the vRO appliance and to be able to paste PowerCLI code straight into a workflow!

    I've talked to the vRO team about this feature request, and it does not sound like it will be implemented.

    I believe there will be better orchestration options for PowerCLI once it runs on Linux. I will revisit the underlying request after we release the multi-platform version.

    :( Sad to see these updates, but happy at the possibilities in the future!

    Dear Jake!

    As someone who uses PCLI and vRealize Orchestrator on a daily basis, I have to say extending the vRO functionality with this little addition would spare us 1) a Windows server (If we want to utilize PS, it's the only way right now) 2) a lot of hassle working with JavaScript-based workflows :)
    Anyway I understand that PCLI on a Linux-based appliance is unusual... I hope we'll get the "multi-platform" PCLI soon:)

    Now that the multi-platform PCLI is out, is this being revisited???

    Also add the vRO that is embedded in the vRA appliance to this wish list

    +1 for this. With Onyx only producing PowerCLI code at the moment and a lot of things being a hell of a lot easier to script in PowerCLI than in vRO Javascript it makes sense to implement a PowerCLI script action using Powershell/PowerCLI core!

    Curious if this is still a firm "Will not implement" and if so, was this due to some technical blocker or a license issue or something else.
