This resource type represents a router on VMware vCenter.

This resource type is provided with the engine, but it is not implemented. You can use it in blueprints and in configuration files, but when you provision an environment, this resource type is ignored. However, the blueprint uses the core properties and extended properties, if any, from this resource type. Review and configure the applicable heat resources that apply to your configuration information.

In the blueprint designer, you can configure the properties that the following table includes. Properties are listed as either core or extended. Each type of property is located in separate sections of the heat resource that you can view in the blueprint designer. You set the core properties in the properties section and set the extended properties in the metadata section of the blueprint.
