    Hello Arar,
    you can find an approach to handle this with an input form of a workflow in the following post:

    https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-Aria-Automation/FileUpload-Parameter-in-vRO-8-1/td-p/2287347

    Here a guide to add these input forms to the service broker catalog:

    Hello Arar,

    here an example to store the file in the temporary directory:

    1. Define in Inputs/Outputs an input variable, in our case in_file.

    2. Add in the workflow a scriptable task and assign as input to this in_file. In this case I didn't rename the variable.

    3. Following lines of code as an example to save any file in the temporary directory.

    The function saveFileContent saves, with the method write, from the mime parameter, the file in the temporary directory. The lines above checks if a file with the same name exists and if the file exists it will be deleted.

    The function fileExists checks if a file with a specific name exists in the temporary directory and if it exists a message is displayed.

    4. Result

    Any file should be able to be saved this way.
