By configuring advanced service endpoints you can connect the vCloud Automation Center to your environment. When you configure vCenter Orchestrator plug-ins as endpoints, you use the vCloud Automation Center user interface to configure the plug-ins instead of using the vCenter Orchestrator configuration interface.

To use vCenter Orchestrator capabilities and the vCenter Orchestrator plug-ins to expose VMware and third-party technologies to vCloud Automation Center, you can configure the vCenter Orchestrator plug-ins by adding the plug-ins as endpoints. This way, you create connections to different hosts and servers, such as vCenter Server instances, a Microsoft Active Directory host, and so on.

When you add a vCenter Orchestrator plug-in as an endpoint by using the vCloud Automation Center UI, you run a configuration workflow in the default vCenter Orchestrator server. The configuration workflows are located in the Orchestrator > vCAC > ASD > Endpoint Configuration workflows folder.


Configuring a single plug-in in vCenter Orchestrator and in the vCloud Automation Center console is not supported and results in errors.
