vRA 7.x - How to submit request with custom machine hostname

This is quite simple actually. I thought I had to do a lot of things to get this done but NOOO. We have a custom property named 'Hostname' which we can use to achieve this.

Add the 'Hostname' custom property to the blueprint with 'Show in Request' ticked which will allow you to input the hostname during request. Pretty simple !!

So below is my simple blueprint deploying a windows machine. The customization spec named 'WindowsServ' will make sure the VM is added to the domain with the Virtual machine name.

The request form will look like this 

Hurray! there you go .. the virtual machine with the name you requested for

Hope this helps:)
