IaaS administrators create endpoints to allow vRealize Automation to communicate with storage devices that use Net App FlexClone technology.

About this task


You do not have to create endpoints one at a time. You can also create endpoints by importing them from a CSV file.



  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Endpoints.
  2. Select New Endpoint > Storage > NetApp ONTAP.
  3. Enter a name in the Name text box.
  4. (Optional) Enter a description in the Description text box.
  5. Type the URL for the endpoint in the Address text box.

    The URL must be of the type: FQDN or IP_address.

    For example: netapp-1.mycompany.local.

  6. Select the Credentials for the endpoint.

    If you did not already store the credentials, you can do so now.

  7. (Optional) Add any custom properties.
  8. Click OK.


vRealize Automation can now discover your compute resources.


Renaming vSphere assets after discovery can cause provisioning to fail.

What to do next

Add the compute resources from your endpoint to a fabric group.
