You can create a proxy endpoint to use when importing OVF to a vSphere machine component in a blueprint or as a value set for an Image component profile when the OVF is hosted on a Web site.

For information about configuring for OVF deployment, see Create a vSphere Endpoint in vRealize Automation and Associate to NSX and Configuring a Blueprint to Provision from an OVF.
