You can specify network and security information for machine components other than vSphere and blueprints that do not contain NSX by using network custom properties at either the blueprint or machine component level.

The Network & Security components are only available for use with vSphere machine components. Non-vSphere machine components do not contain a Network or Security tab.

For machine components that do not have a Network or Security tab, you can add network and security custom properties, such as VirtualMachine.Network0.Name, to their Properties tab in the design canvas. NSX network, security, and load balancer properties are only applicable to vSphere machines.

You can define custom properties individually or as part of an existing property group by using the Properties tab when configuring a machine component in the design canvas. The custom properties that you define for a machine component pertain to machines of that type that are provisioned from the blueprint.

For information about the available custom properties, see Custom Properties Grouped by Function and Custom Properties Grouped by Name.
