You add a service, catalog item, or an action to an entitlement, to allow the users and groups identified in the entitlement to request provisionable items from the service catalog. The entitlement allows members of a particular business group (for example, the Production business group) to use the blueprint. Without the entitlement, the users cannot use the blueprint. 

Perform this procedure to create an entitlement for the Production business group.
