A flavor mapping groups a set of target deployment sizings for a specific cloud account/region in Cloud Assembly using natural language naming.

Flavor mapping lets you create a named mapping that contains similar flavor sizings across your account regions. For example, a flavor map named standard_small might contain a similar flavor sizing (such as 1 CPU, 2 GB RAM) for some or all available account/regions in your project. When you build a blueprint, you pick an available flavor that fits your needs.

Organize flavor mappings for your project by deployment intent.

To simplify blueprint creation, you can select a pre-configuration option when you add a new cloud account. When you select the pre-configuration option, your organization's most popular flavor mapping and image mapping for the specified region are selected.

For a basic flavor mapping example, see WordPress use case: add flavor mappings.
