Mappings and profiles help to control how and where compute resources are placed during blueprint deployment.

Mappings and profiles are specific to a cloud account/region pairing.

  • Network and storage profiles

    Blueprint constraint tag values are matched to network profile and storage profile capability tags values to select a profile. Profile settings are further selected for inclusion during blueprint deployment by tag matching between the blueprint and the profiles. For example, a mapped network profile might contain settings that determine network and security rules. The mapped storage profile might also define the amount and type of storage resources for compute resources.

    After capability and constraint values are matched, any additional tag values are matched.

  • Image and flavor mappings

    Image and flavor mappings contain settings for the deployment's OS configuration and resource sizings.
