The deployment parameter spreadsheet provides a mechanism to specify the required deployment information specific to your environment. This includes information about your networks, hosts, license keys, and other information. The spreadsheet is downloaded from the Cloud Builder VM. The completed spreadsheet is then converted to a JSON file. The deployment parameter spreadsheet can be reused to deploy multiple Cloud Foundation instances of the same version.
