To prepare your VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC environment to support the Cloud Assembly data collector, you must configure a VMC adapter in your VMware Cloud on AWS subscription service.

You establish authentication credentials between your Cloud Assembly and VMware Cloud on AWS services by way of the configured VMC adapter.

After you configure the VMC adapter in your VMware Cloud on AWS subscription service, you can begin the process of creating a VMware Cloud on AWS cloud account in Cloud Assembly.
