确定适配器所需的对象类型后,您可以为对象类型提供参数值以创建适配器实例。您的 POST 请求包括请求正文以及所需参数。

要创建适配器实例,必须使用 VCURL 设置。

前提条件

确认您具有 vCenter 的 IP 地址和凭据。

过程

  1. 发出 POST 请求以创建适配器实例。
    POST https://vrealize.example.com/suite-api/api/adapters
  2. 检查响应以查找 vSphere 解决方案的名称及其适配器类型。
    请参阅 适配器实例 的响应部分。

示例: 适配器实例

此示例将使用以下参数为 vCenter 创建适配器实例:

  • 显示名称:VC 适配器实例
  • 说明:VC 12.345.678.9 的 vCenter 适配器实例
  • vCenter Server IP 地址:https://12.345.678.9
  • 凭据名称:VC-Credential-1
  • 用户名:administrator@vsphere.local
  • 密码:VC-dummy-passwd

AUTODISCOVERYPROCESSCHANGEEVENTS 为可选,但包含在请求正文和响应中可显示更多资源标识符示例。
