When you bind an artifact to an application blueprint, you actually bind an artifact specification to a property of an application component, service, or external service in the blueprint.
About this task
Log in to Application Services as an application architect.
Verify that you are a member of the appropriate business group.
Verify that a suitable mapping of an artifact specification with an artifact repository instance exists. See Map an Artifact Specification to an Artifact Repository Instance.
- On the Application Services title bar, click the drop-down menu and select Applications.
- Open an application, an application version, and then a blueprint.
- Select an existing application component, service, or external service, or add a new one.
- Click the Properties tab.
- Locate the property to bind to the artifact.
For example, a JAR file has the jar_file property where you can specify a downloadable file URL. Alternatively, you can generate and bind a unique text string as a package name for installing packages from a yum repository.
- Click the Edit icon for the property.
The Edit Property dialog box appears.
- Select an artifact name from the Blueprint Value drop-down menu labeled bind to an artifact.
- Click Save when finished.
- Click OK when prompted to save or discard blueprint changes.
