  1. I don’t know why VMware are not patching this for vRA 7.5?!

    To make matters worse they have pulled vRA 7.6 HF1 so can’t even fix with an upgrade!

    1. Hello Luke,

      I also have asked in our internal channel from VMware about availability to vRA 7.5, but so far no news!!! This issue is really annoying as you can imagine. I have upgraded the environment vRA7.5 to 7.6 and issues still remains, only fixed after patch applied HF1 as described in this post!
      TIP: Please test in a development environment first before upgrade! I had several issues with all the Custom forms and XaaS forms (all texts were moved to left side, making all the screens very ugly to be seen!)

      I hope VMware manages to launch the patch to vRA 7.5, but I think this is a way to force upgrade to 7.6 in order to prepare for the next release (vRA 8);
