After you create a service blueprint, it is in a draft state and you can publish it as a catalog item.


Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a service architect.


  1. Select Advanced Services > Service Blueprints.
  2. Select the row of the service blueprint to publish, and click Publish.


The status of the service blueprint changes to Published. If you select Administration > Catalog Management > Catalog Items, you can see that the blueprint is published as a catalog item.

What to do next

You can create a resource action to define the operations that the consumers can perform against the item they provision. See Create a Resource Action. If you do not want to create a resource action, you can create a service and include the catalog item in it. For more information about creating a service, see Create a Service.
