You can map an external service instance to a deployment environment so that the instance is always used when an application is deployed to that deployment environment.



  1. On the Application Services title bar, click the drop-down menu and select Clouds > Deployment Environments.
  2. Select an existing deployment environment.
  3. Select the External Service Instance tab and click Register to create an external service instance.
  4. Complete the external service instance information for the deployment environment.



    Name and Description

    Include the external service name in either of these fields. The text from the name field appears in the Deployment Profile wizard under the Deployment Environment column.

    External Service Version

    If the external service does not appear in the drop-down list, cancel the dialog box and select Library > External Services to add a custom external service to the library.

    Service Provider

    Click the down arrow to select from a list of service providers that are associated with the external service.


    This option appears when you map a custom external service to the deployment environment.

    The properties defined in the external service version or provider specification version are automatically populated in the Properties section.

  5. Click Save.
  6. Click the arrow next to the external service instance name to return to the previous page.
