  • related.hostingNode – Returns a node that is associated with the given triggers and is hosting the software instance.
  • discovery.wbemEnumInstances – a new parameter, filter_locally has been added. When set, the function does not request specific properties so all are returned. Only the specified properties are stored as DDD. This parameter can be used if a particular system does not support the retrieval of specific properties.
  • discovery.access – you no longer have to provide a DDD node. If no DDD node is specified, the function returns the DiscoveryAccess currently in use.

  • discovery.vSphereTraverseToObjects  traverses from the initial object to instances of an object type and get properties on those objects.
