Introduction to the VMware vCenter Orchestrator SOAP Plug-In
The VMware vCenter Orchestrator SOAP plug-in allows organizations to integrate their cloud provisioning and operations use cases with systems that offer Web services. Provisioning a virtual machine or requesting a cloud-hosted IT service, often is part of a larger IT process that includes various management systems, such as service desk, change management, IP address management, CMDB, or configuration management. With the SOAP plug-in, organizations can integrate vSphere and vCloud Director into automated processes that use third-party-system SOAP APIs.
The SOAP plug-in provides the ability to query a URI or import a target application’s WSDL directly into the Orchestrator client. This enables workflow developers to browse the WSDL and create workflows from SOAP operations.
The SOAP plug-in supports SSL authentication to provide secure communication with third-party systems.
The VMware vCenter Orchestrator SOAP Plug-In 1.0 release runs on VMware vCenter Orchestrator 4.1 and the subsequent update releases. For instructions about installing and configuring the plug-in, see Using the vCenter Orchestrator SOAP Plug-In 1.0.x.
