Tenant administrators and business group managers can create blueprints that prompt users to select datacenter locations, for example, London or Boston, when they request a machine.


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

  • Your system administrator must add datacenter locations to a locations file. See System Administration.

  • Your fabric administrator must associate compute resources to datacenter locations. See Associate a Compute Resource with a Location.

  • Create at least one cloud or virtual blueprint.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Blueprints > Blueprints.
  2. Point to the blueprint to which you want to add datacenter location selection and click Edit.
  3. Select Display location on request.
  4. Click OK.


Business group users are now prompted to select a datacenter location when they request a machine to be provisioned from this blueprint.
