In the IT Automating IT use case, IaaS administrators create endpoints and configure user credentials for those endpoints. These endpoints allow vRealize Automation to manage the infrastructure. After creation of the endpoint for vSphere, vRealize Automation can communicate with the vCenter Server environment and discover compute resources, collect data, and provision machines.
