Vspehredb module as sync rule source


i try to create a sync rule to import our VMs into the director.
For that porpose i use the vspheredb module.

The configuration of the sync rule looks like this:

But i only get this information

Is it possible to get further information like DNS-Name or OS?

Best regards,


the importer from vspheredb is worse for now. hopefully it will reach the same as the vsphere import module (which is deprecated :frowning: ) one day. Maybe it help if you send @tgelf some Gin :wink:


Hello Carsten,

I’ve already suspected something like this.
But since the vSphere module already has the data, I thought it might be possible to get it somehow.

Maybe I should open a request for it at GitHub.

Best Regards

you can use sql as importsource, as i am doing. This way you can get all with a sql query.
