VMware vCloud Director is a cloud service-delivery platform to operate and manage cloud-service businesses.

NOTE
Axonius supports VMWare vCloud Director 9.0 and above.

The username has to be in a specific format as described here:
https://www.justvirtualthings.com/getting-started-with-vcloud-director-api/
so , if this is a global user it would be something like admin@system but if its an org user it can be something like user@acme.com@acme-org-id

The VMware vCloud Director adapter connection requires the following parameters:

  1. vCloud Director Domain – Your VMware vCloud Director domain.

  2. User Name and Password - Provide the user name and password for a read-only user.
    You must append either "@system" to the user name or "@orgname". This depends on the role you have set for the user. System administrator users must use "@system" because admin user is not bound to a special organization. org admin or org user must append the organization name.

    For example:

    • superadmin@system
    • orgadmin@acme
    • superadmin@domain.tld@system (email format)

  3. Verify SSL – Choose whether to verify the SSL certificate of the server.

  4. HTTPS Proxy (optional) – Connect the adapter to a proxy instead of directly connecting it to the domain.

  5. Choose Instance - If you are using multi-nodes, choose the Axonius node that is integrated with the adapter. By default, the 'Master' Axonius node (instance) is used. For details, see Connecting Additional Axonius Nodes
