In this example, a cloud administrator adds two machines as a single deployment and creates a blueprint as part of the workload onboarding plan.
For this workflow, use an Amazon Web Services cloud account to onboard one or more machines that were deployed outside of Cloud Assembly.
Machines that are associated to a new cloud account's source endpoint are automatically data-collected and then displayed on thepage.
For related information, see WordPress Use Case: Add Cloud Accounts.
Verify that you have the required user role. See What are the Cloud Assembly User Roles.

Create and prepare a Cloud Assembly project.
This involves some of the basic steps in your guided setup procedure.
Create a project, add users, and assign user roles in the project. See WordPress Use Case: Create the Infrastructure.
Create an Amazon Web Services cloud account in designated regions for the project. See WordPress Use Case: Create a Project.
For this use case, the Amazon Web Services cloud account is assumed to contain machines that were deployed by an application other than Cloud Assembly.
Verify that the Machines page contains the machines that you want to onboard; the machine Origin column indicates that they have been Discovered. See Machine Resources.
