vRO code - Finding all items in a Business Group

I recently needed to figure out how many items are deployed for a specific vRA Business Group. Items includes virtual machines but also anything else a user can deploy. That seemed an easy task but finding all items in a business group turned out to be a bit harder than expected. So to save others the trouble of figuring out how this works I’ll share my code here. You can copy-paste the code below directly to a vRO action.``` var cafeHost = vCACCAFEEntitiesFinder.getHostForEntity(businessGroup);

service = cafeHost.createCatalogClient().getCatalogConsumerResourceService();

var filter = new Array(); filter[0] = vCACCAFEFilterParam.substringOf(“organization/subTenant/id”, vCACCAFEFilterParam.string(; var query = vCACCAFEOdataQuery.query().addFilter(filter); var odataRequest = new vCACCAFEPageOdataRequest(1, 10000, query); resources = service.getResourcesList(odataRequest);

return resources;
