For the IT Automating IT use case, as an IaaS administrator, you create endpoints and configure user credentials for those endpoints. The endpoints allow vRealize Automation to manage the vSphere infrastructure. When you create a vSphere endpoint, vRealize Automation can communicate with the vCenter Server environment and discover compute resources, collect data, and provision machines.
