In the multi-tier application scenario, the service catalog provides a common interface for users of IT services. Users can request and manage the services and resources they need. Users can browse the catalog to request services, track their requests, and manage their provisioned service items.  

After the service catalog is created, business group managers can create entitlements for services, catalog items, and resource actions to groups of users. The entitlement allows members of a business group, for example, the Production business group, to use the blueprint. Without an entitlement, users cannot use the blueprint.
