A blueprint is a complete specification of a service.

With service blueprints, you can publish predefined and custom vRealize Orchestrator workflows as catalog items for either requesting or provisioning. Blueprints for requesting run workflows with no provisioning and provide no options for managing a provisioned item. Before you create a blueprint for provisioning, you must map the workflow output parameter as a custom resource. Then you can assign resource actions that define post-provisioning operations.
