You can configure one or more CloudHealth integrations, so that you can provide and use public cloud costs for deployments and projects.

You can only create one CloudHealth integration per organization in VMware Aria Automation.

CloudHealth provides two user roles: Administrator and Power User, which also work with the integration to Automation Assembler. The user that owns the API key used in creating the integration must belong to the global organization in CloudHealth to have visibility to all public cloud accounts.

When a CloudHealth integration is created, VMware Aria Automation creates perspective groups for each public deployment hosted in VMware Aria Automation.

The perspective is synced every 12 hours to sync any new VMware Aria Automation deployments with CloudHealth. Once synced, CloudHealth generates the cost for all perspective groups and sends the data toVMware Aria Automation. For more information on costs for public cloud deployments, see How to view pricing for AWS and Azure.

Prices are synced every 6 hours. You can also sync the perspective and prices on demand by clicking Sync Perspective and Sync Prices from the integration page.


  • You must have at least one perspective available for reporting in CloudHealth. If you plan to deploy many public cloud deployments, you might need to increase the perspective group limit . By default, CloudHealth has a limit of 200 perspective groups for each perspective. If you plan to have more deployments, contact CloudHealth to request a limit increase.
  • The API key must have:
    • Perspective CRUD Privileges
    • AWS and Azure cost current and history report read privileges
