To allow vRealize Automation to manage the infrastructure, IaaS administrators create endpoints and configure user credentials for those endpoints. When you create an endpoint for vSphere, vRealize Automation can communicate with the vCenter Server environment and discover compute resources that are managed by vCenter Server, collect data, and provision machines.
