Using your IaaS, software, or application architect privileges, create a blueprint container and configure the name, description, and unique identifier for your MySQL on CentOS vSphere blueprint.


  1. Select Design > Blueprints.
  2. Click the New icon (Add).
  3. Enter MySQL on CentOS in the Name text box.
  4. Review the generated unique identifier.

    The identifier field automatically populates based on the name you entered. You can edit this field now, but after you save the blueprint you can never change it. Because identifiers are permanent and unique within your tenant, you can use them to programmatically interact with blueprints and to create property bindings.

  5. Enter MySQL Software on vSphere CentOS Machine in the Description text box.
  6. Configure a lease range for users to choose from by entering 1 in the Minimum text box and 7 in the Maximum text box.

    Users can choose to lease their requested machines for up to 7 days before having to renew their leases or letting their machines be destroyed.

  7. Click OK.

What to do next

Drag your MySQL component and your published CentOS for Software machine blueprint onto the canvas.
