A basic workflow blueprint provisions a virtual machine with no guest operating system. You can install the operating system after the machine is provisioned.

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


Blueprint information settings control who can access a blueprint, how many machines they can provision with it, and how long to archive a machine after the lease period is over.


The build information settings determine how a machine is provisioned.


Machine resource settings control the resources consumed by a machine provisioned with your blueprint.


Adding custom properties to a blueprint gives you detailed control over provisioned machines.


Use blueprint actions and entitlements together to maintain detailed control over provisioned machines.
