The vCloud Suite API plug-in provides the ability to consume API exposed by any vCloud Suite API provider. The vCloud Suite API provides a service-oriented architecture for accessing resources in the virtual environment by issuing requests to vCenter Server, through the vCloud Suite Endpoint.

The plug-in contains a set of standard workflows and example workflows. You can also create custom workflows that implement the plug-in to automate tasks in your virtual environment. For information about vCloud Suite API, see VMware vCloud Suite SDKs Programming Guide.
