To account for dependencies between application components, you configure the blueprint to stagger the build process. You perform that configuration by mapping the dependencies directly on the design canvas.

  2. Navigate to  Design > Blueprints
  3. Select the Multi-Tier Web App blueprint and click Edit.
  4. Create two dependency lines.
    1. Hover over the upper left corner of the Web tier icon on the canvas until the the blue circle appears and click and drag the dependency indicator to the edge of Database tier icon.

      A dotted dependency line appears.

    2. Hover over the PHP Service on the canvas until the blue circle appears, click and drag the dependency indicator to the edge of Apache Service.

      A short line appears. You have to add this dependency because you can only run a single yum process at a time while creating the software components. The dependency helps align the creation of software components in order and bind related components.

  5. Click Finish.

    This saves the blueprint you have configured for use with the Web application.
