You can add one or more NSX network components to the design canvas and configure their settings for vSphere machine components in the blueprint.

You can add network components to the canvas to make their configured settings available to one or more machine components in the blueprint.

The network and security component settings that you add to the blueprint design canvas are derived from your NSX configuration and require that you have installed the NSX plug-in and run data collection for the NSX inventory for vSphere clusters. Network and security components are specific to NSX and are available for use with vSphere machine components only. For information about configuring NSX, see NSX Administration Guide.
