The vCloud API supports objects and operations that an organization administrator can use to automate tasks associated with managing organizations and the VDCs, networks, catalogs, and users they contain.

A successful login by an organization administrator returns a Session element, which contains a link that enables the administrator to retrieve a VCloud element. This element provides links to objects in the administrator's organization and read-only links to system-wide objects such as roles and rights. See Retrieve an Administrative View of a Cloud.
