VMware Aria Automation 8 supports sharing VMware Cloud Templates between projects.
During migration, you can migrate blueprints that are shared with existing projects. You can also maintain shared VMware Cloud Templates across projects even when the original project is rolled back. When the original project is rolled back, the cloud template ownership is transferred to another project.
To migrate shared blueprints:
- Run a migration assessment on your VMware Aria Automation 7 source environment. For more information on how to run a migration assessment, see Run a Migration Assessment on a vRealize Automation Instance.
- Select the Infrastructure tab, select the first business group containing the blueprint, and click Migrate.
The migrated blueprints and their associated projects are seen on the Design tab of Automation Assembler and as catalog items in Automation Service Broker.
- Navigate back to the Infrastructure tab, select the additional business groups containing the blueprint, and click Migrate.
In Automation Assembler, the cloud template is shown as only belonging to the first migrated project, but in Automation Service Broker the cloud template lists all projects in which it belongs.
