As a cloud administrator, you can add blueprints to Service Broker by adding a Cloud Assembly content source. The blueprints are the specifications for services or applications that you can deploy to your cloud providers.

When you add blueprints, you entitle project members to deploy the blueprints. At the request time, the blueprint is deployed to cloud zone account region or datastore that supports the blueprint requirements.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that the blueprints that you want to import have a released version in Cloud Assembly. Only the latest released version of a blueprint is imported.

Procedure

  1. Select Administration > Content Sources.
  2. In the Type drop-down menu, select Blueprint.
  3. Enter the Name and Description for this content source.
  4. In the Entitled to project(s) list, select one or more projects.

    The projects are defined by your cloud administrator in Cloud Assembly. Each project consists of one or more users, and the project links the users to one or more cloud zone account regions or datastores. The regions or datastores are where the catalog requests can be deployed by the requesting members.

  5. Click Validate.

    The validation process verifies the number of released blueprints that are in all projects in Cloud Assembly.

  6. Click Create and Import.

Results

The released blueprints are imported into Service Broker.

They are visible to the entitled project members on the Catalog tab.

What to do next

Verify that you can deploy an imported blueprint. See Deploy a Catalog Item.
