Auto mounting datastore to new hosts in cluster

Say my SDDC has 1 cluster (Cluster-1) which has 3 hosts (Host-A, Host-B, Host-C). Now I create a NAS datastore (NASDatastore1) and associate it will all my hosts in Cluster-1, and it works fine.

Now, say I added a new host to my Cluster-1, which is Host-D. Now by default Host-D will not be associated with NASDatastore1. I need to right-click on NASDatastore1, and select "Mount datastore to additional hosts" option to associate the new Host-D with NASDatastore1.

Question - Is there an option in vCenter through which I can tell VMWare to automatically associate/mount new hosts getting added in a cluster to the existing datastores?

Its possible to do such things in vRealize Orchestrator with scheduled run, but you will need to write custom workflow with script.
