Create a different deployment profile for each deployment environment. In a deployment profile, you can enter or override application properties for a specific deployment if the Override at Deployment option is enabled for the property.

For example, for a particular deployment environment, you might change the database port to 3307.

Verify that your user account has the ROLE_DEPLOYER deployer role assigned to it.

Verify that at least one application is created in vCloud Application Director. See Creating Applications.


On the vCloud Application Director title bar, click the drop-down menu and select Applications.


Click the name of the application.

A list of application versions appears.


Select an application version and click Create DP to create a deployment profile that you can save or deploy immediately.


(Optional) To create another deployment profile, click New.


Set a name for the deployment profile and click Deploy.

You might name the profile so that the name indicates which type of environment is used, specific override property, or clustered node configuration.

For example, for an application called MyTimecard, you might name the profile myTimecard-QA to indicate that this profile is for the QA environment rather than for the production environment.

The Deployment Profile wizard appears, with the Deployment Environment page highlighted.

Map the logical templates and network templates for the application deployment. See Configure the Deployment Environment Tab.
