Creating a data source

vCloud Networking and Security requires the following information in a data source:

  • endpoint: The secure URL to the vCloud Networking and Security Manager computer. This name or IP address is also known as <vsm-ip> in VMware documentation. For example,
  • username: The name of a vCloud Networking and Security Manager account. You must assign this user global scope or another scope that gives them access to all the Edges for which you want to collect data.
  • password: The password for this user

You can define this information in a managed data source or an explicit data source. For general information about these two types, see Setting up a data source.

Managed data source

When creating a managed data source, select the type vCloud Networking and Security. When referring to your data source from a job, use the com.cloudcruiser.batch.collect.vmware.vcloudnetsec.ManagedVCloudNetSecDataSource​​​​ bean. For example:

<bean id="dataSource" class="com.cloudcruiser.batch.collect.vmware.vcloudnetsec.ManagedVCloudNetSecDataSource">
  <property name="name" value="MyVcloudNetSecDataSource"/>

Explicit data source

When defining your data source in a job, use the com.cloudcruiser.batch.collect.vmware.vcloudnetsec.VCloudNetSecDataSourceConfig​​​ bean. For example:

<bean class="com.cloudcruiser.batch.collect.vmware.vcloudnetsec.VCloudNetSecDataSourceConfig​">
  <property name="endpoint" value="" />
  <property name="username" value="myvnsmaccount" />
  <property name="password" value="mypassword" />
