Your vRealize Operations Manager instance includes multiple adapter types. To find the adapter type for the vCenter adapter, you make a GET request to retrieve a list of all adapter types. The API response includes all the object types that the adapter monitors.

Prerequisites

Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Operations Manager instance.

Procedure

  1. Make a GET request for all adapter types.
    GET https://vrealize.example.com/suite-api/api/adapterkinds
  2. Examine the response to find the vCenter adapter and list of monitored object types.

Determine the Adapter Type and Object Types for the vCenter Adapter

This example finds the adapter type for the vCenter adapter and all the object types included in the adapter model definition.

Request header:

GET https://vRealize.example.com/suite-api/api/adapterkinds
Content-Type: application/json
Authorization: vRealizeOpsToken <vROps_token>
Accept: application/json

Where vROps_token is the token that you obtained from the response in Login Request and Response.
