An IaaS administrator can organize virtualization compute resources and cloud endpoints into fabric groups by type and intent. An IaaS administrator also assigns one or more fabric administrators to manage the resources in the fabric group.

You can grant the Fabric Administrator role to multiple users by either adding multiple users one at a time or by choosing an identity store group or custom group as your fabric administrator.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as an IaaS administrator.

Create at least one endpoint.


Select Infrastructure > Groups > Fabric Groups.


Click New Fabric Group.


Enter a name in the Name text box.


(Optional) Enter a description in the Description text box.


Type a user name or group name in the Fabric administrators text box and press Enter.

Repeat this step to add multiple users or groups to the role.


Click one or more Compute resources to include in your fabric group.


Click OK.

Fabric administrators can now configure machine prefixes.


Users who are currently logged in to the vCloud Automation Center console must log out and log back in to the vCloud Automation Center console before they can navigate to the pages to which they have been granted access.
