Instead of adding endpoints one at a time by using the vCloud Automation Center console, you can import a list of endpoints of various types by uploading a CSV file.

The CSV file must contain a header row with the expected fields. Fields are case sensitive and must be in a specific order. You can upload multiple endpoints of varying types with the same CSV file. For vCloud Director, system administrator accounts are imported, rather than organization administrator endpoints.
