The vCloud Suite API plug-in discovers vCloud Suite API services dynamically by querying a vCloud Suite API provider metadata service. vCloud Suite API providers which are not exposing metadata service are not supported.

You must import a vCloud Suite API metamodel and add endpoints afterwards.


  1. Log in to the vRealize Orchestrator Client as an administrator.
  2. Navigate to Library > Workflows and enter the vapi tag in the workflow search box.
  3. Locate the Import vAPI metamodel workflow and click Run.
  4. In the vAPI endpoint URL text box, enter the URL of your vCloud Suite API endpoint.
  5. Select whether to use a secure protocol connection.
    Option Description
    No Import the vCloud Suite API metamodel, without using a secure protocol connection.
    Yes To import the vCloud Suite API metamodel with secure protocol connection:
    1. Select whether to ignore certificate warnings and accept the vCloud Suite endpoint automatically.
    2. Provide the user credentials to authenticate with the vCloud Suite endpoint.
  6. Select whether to add a vAPI endpoint using the same credentials.
  7. Click Run.
