An IaaS administrator can organize virtualization compute resources and cloud endpoints into fabric groups by type and intent. An IaaS administrator also assigns one or more fabric administrators to manage the resources in the fabric group.

About this task

You can grant the Fabric Administrator role to multiple users by either adding multiple users one at a time or by choosing an identity store group or custom group as your fabric administrator.


  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as an IaaS administrator.

  • Create at least one endpoint.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Groups > Fabric Groups.
  2. Click New Fabric Group.
  3. Enter a name in the Name text box.
  4. (Optional) Enter a description in the Description text box.
  5. Type a user name or group name in the Fabric administrators text box and press Enter.

    Repeat this step to add multiple users or groups to the role.

  6. Click one or more Compute resources to include in your fabric group.

    Only templates that exist on the clusters you select for your fabric group are discovered during data collection and available for cloning on reservations you create for business groups.

  7. Click OK.


Fabric administrators can now configure machine prefixes.

Users who are currently logged in to the vRealize Automation console must log out and log back in to the vRealize Automation console before they can navigate to the pages to which they have been granted access.
