For vRealize Automation to manage your infrastructure, IaaS administrators must create endpoints, store administrator-level user credentials for those endpoints, and add compute resources to a fabric group.

Depending on your environment, the procedure for creating endpoints and storing credentials differs slightly.

For cloud platforms, compute resources represent regions rather than specific virtualization hosts. vRealize Automation collects information about the regions available on each cloud endpoint and an IaaS administrator can add the regions to a fabric group.
