In the "Set up the API call to provision a VM" section, please change the following in the script.


params.setCores(vmMemory); should be changed to params.setCores(vmCPU);


Note: In the existing script, memory input is getting passed as CPU input. hence, requesting to make the required changes after inporting the WF
