  1. In Asset Management, create an Asset Folder for the asset pool group. See, Creating custom views.
  2. Create a VM Entitlement and select a folder for the group. See, Creating entitlements.

  3. Use the Virtual Machines API to create add a folderpath to the asset folder in My Assets.
  4. Create a new endpoint to return the group information.
  5. Create a new endpoint to return the next available token.
