You can create reservations to allocate resources to business groups. Depending on your scenario, the procedure to create a reservation differs.

Choose a reservation scenario based on the target endpoint type.

Each business group must have at least one reservation for its members to provision machines of that type. For example, a business group with an OpenStack reservation but not an Amazon reservation, cannot request a machine from Amazon. In this example, the business group must be allocated a reservation specifically for Amazon resources.
