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.

To ensure that you can deploy the imported templates, you might need to add cloud accounts and projects.

After you add the 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.
