Projects are groups of users that you want to entitle to request catalog items. You can use the projects that are added when you add Cloud Assembly content sources, or you can create projects in Service Broker.

As an administrator, you can add new project if the projects collected from Cloud Assembly do not meet the needs of your Service Broker users.

  • If you are working with imported blueprints, you must have cloud zones to deploy the blueprints to. Projects created in Service Broker are not associated with cloud zones, so you must add the zones in Cloud Assembly to ensure that the members can deploy their catalog requests.

  • If you are working with imported CloudFormation templates, they can only be deployed to Amazon Web Services regions. You use the AWS cloud account regions that were defined in Cloud Assembly or you can use this procedure to add AWS cloud accounts that you can deploy the templates to.

Prerequisites

  • If you are working with Cloud Assembly blueprints, you only need to create projects in Service Broker if you want to expand the number of projects. After you create the project here, you must add cloud zones to it in Cloud Assembly.

  • If you are working with CloudFormation templates, you can create a project and add users. You must know which users you are associating with this project.

Procedure

  1. In Service Broker, select Administration > Projects, and click New Project.
  2. Enter the project information on the Summary tab.
  3. Click the Users tab, and then click Add Users.

    To add project users, they must already be active service organization users.

  4. Click Create.

    The new project is added to your projects. It is also added to your associated Cloud Assembly instance. If the project is for blueprints, you can add cloud zones in Cloud Assembly. If the project is for templates, you do not need to add cloud zones.

  5. In Cloud Assembly, select Infrastructure > Projects and add cloud zones to your new project.

What to do next

To entitle the project users to catalog items after you created a content source, you can update the content source with the new project.
