vRA 7.2 - Communication between vRA Client (portal/web browser) to IIS, vRA

Jump to solution

Hi

I am new to the vRA, just done with the POC deployment and seeking inputs/thoughts from vRA experts in this forum.

I am curious knowing how/what communication or workflow is when a User access the vRA portal using a web browser.

For Example. Tenant Administrator logs into the vRA portal (using a web browser) and creates a vSpere Endpoint then what is the flow and communication are used:

vRA portal (web browser) => (SOAP or REST web services?) IIS Server(.Net web application?) => (SOAP or REST web services / RPC ?) to vRA appliance => (SOAP Web Services call?) vSphere SDK.

Also, want to know what role the agents perform. Pointers to specific product documentation, programming guides are appreciated.

Thanks!

The vRealize Automation Reference Architecture provides information on communication/ports requirements:

vRealize Automation 7.2 Information Center

There is also a programming guide and REST API reference available in the public PDF documentation:

vRealize Automation 7.2 Information Center

There is a lot of information in the GA documentation to digest, hopefully this helps?
