vCloud Director Credentials

VCloud Director system administrators are not automatically imported into OnApp from vCloud Director (as, in this case they will automatically get access to all the OnApp functions). Alternatively, OnApp administrators can set their own vCloud Director credentials to be able to log into vCloud Director and manage vCloud Director resources with OnApp.

Also OnApp administrators can create system administrators in their OnApp cloud and assign administrator roles to them at their own risk. After that system administrators can log in to OnApp and then set their vCD credentials by themselves. Administrators can also set the vCloud Director password for their users.

The following vCloud Director credentials are displayed on the user profile page:

  • Login  - the user's vCloud Director login 
  • Password - click the Change Password link to edit the user's vCloud Director credentials
