To create and update subscription catalogs, VMware Marketplace requires access to the API endpoints of VMware Cloud Director.

Problem

After importing applications from VMware Marketplace to App Launchpad, no catalog creation or catalog synchronization tasks appear in the task panel in VMware Cloud Director service provider admin portal.

Cause

If VMware Marketplace cannot access the required API endpoints of VMware Cloud Director, you cannot import applications from VMware Marketplace to VMware Marketplace.

Solution

Make sure that VMware Marketplace can access the following API endpoints of VMware Cloud Director:
  • /api/admin/org/%s/catalogs
  • /api/catalog/%s
  • /api/admin/catalog/%s
  • /action/sync

If you implemented inbound access control for your VMware Cloud Director API server, define SNAT rules that allow inbound requests from VMware Marketplace. To find the egress IP addresses of VMware Marketplace, go to Settings > Egress IPs.
