You can create an on-demand routed network profile that uses either the supplied vRealize Automation IPAM endpoint or a properly configured and registered third-party IPAM endpoint.

A routed network profile represent routeable IP space that is divided across multiple networks. Each new routed network allocates the next available subnet from the routable IP space. A routed network can access all other routed networks that use the same network profile. Each routed subnet can access all other subnets created by the same network profile.

For a third-party IPAM provider, the routable IP space is created and managed by the third-party IPAM provider. The network administrator uses a third-party IPAM provider to define a routable IP space and create an IP block for it. You can select one or more IP blocks retrieved from the third-party IPAM provider when you create or edit a routed network profile.

When a new instance of a routed network profile is allocated from the third-party IPAM provider, vRealize Automation calls the provider to reserve the next available subnet and creates a range, using IP blocks that are determined by the routed network profile and the subnet size. The resulting range is used to allocate IP addresses for machines that are assigned to the routed network in the same deployment.
