SublistPlacementAttribute Data Type

One of the two types of placement attributes. Sublist placement attributes' allowed values are represented by a map between this attribute's own allowed values and which value they correspond to in the specified parent placement attribute. By identifying the capabilities of each deployment destination and the requirements of a service, placement attributes help ensure that service requests are deployed to the best destination. For example, placement attributes can help vCommander decide whether to deploy to public or private cloud, or which datacenter or geographic region is best suited to a service.
