Blueprints are saved in the draft state and must be manually published before they appear as catalog items.

About this task

You need to publish a blueprint only once. Any changes you make to a published blueprint are automatically reflected in the catalog.


  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a tenant administrator or business group manager.

  • Create a blueprint.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Blueprints > Blueprints.
  2. Point to the blueprint to publish and click Publish from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click OK.


Your blueprint is now a catalog item.

What to do next

Tenant administrators, business group managers, and service architects configure your catalog item and associate it with a service so that entitled users can request it from the catalog. For information about how to configure and manage the catalog, see Tenant Administration.
