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

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

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as a tenant administrator or business group manager.

Create a blueprint.


Select Infrastructure > Blueprints > Blueprints.


Point to the blueprint you want to publish and click Publish.


Click OK.

Your blueprint is now a catalog item.

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.
