A machine blueprint is the complete specification for a virtual, cloud or physical machine. A machine blueprint determines the machine's attributes, how it is provisioned, and its policy and management settings. Machine blueprints are published as catalog items in the service catalog.

Machine blueprints can be specific to a business group or shared among groups within a tenant. Tenant administrators can create shared blueprints that can be entitled to users in any business group within the tenant. Business group managers can create group blueprints that can only be entitled to users within a specific business group. A business group manager cannot modify or delete shared blueprints. Tenant administrators cannot view or modify group blueprints unless they also have the business group manager role for the appropriate group.

If a tenant administrator sets a shared blueprint's properties so that it can be copied, the business group manager can also copy the shared blueprint for use as a starting point to create a new group blueprint.
