You create a project to which you add members and cloud zones so that the project members can deploy their blueprints to the associated zones. As the vRealize Automation Cloud Assembly administrator, you create a project for a development team. You can then assign a project administrator or you can operate as the project administrator.

When you create a blueprint, you first select the project to associate it with. The project must exist before you can create the blueprint.

Ensure that your projects support the business needs of the development team.

  • Does the project provide the resources that support the team's goals. For an example of how the infrastructure resources and a project support a blueprint, see The WordPress use case.

This procedure is based on creating an initial project that includes only the basic configurations. As your development team creates and deploys their blueprints, you might modify to the project. You can add constraints, custom properties, and other options to improve deployment efficiencies. See the articles available in Learn more about vRealize Automation Cloud Assembly projects.



  1. Select Infrastructure > Configure > Projects, and click New Project.
  2. Enter the project name.
  3. Click the User tab.
    1. To make deployments by project members accessible only to the owner, turn off Deployment sharing.
    2. Add users with assigned roles.
  4. Click the Provisioning tab and add one or more cloud zones.
    The cloud zones must contain the resources that support the blueprints deployed by the users.
  5. Click Create.
  6. To test your project with the project cloud zones, click Test Configuration on the Projects page.
    The simulation runs a standardized hypothetical deployment test against the project cloud zone resources. If it fails, you can review the details and correct your resource configuration.
