vCloud Automation Center – vCAC 6.0 – Enabling Catalog Items

Caution: Articles written for technical not grammatical accuracy, If poor grammar offends you proceed with caution ;-)

When we created a blueprint we had to publish the blueprint. Publishing the blueprint allows it to become available as a catalog item that we can assign to a service and later entitle a user to have access to. In this article we will be assigning the blueprint to a service and enabling it as a catalog item. This will not make it show up in the catalog just yet, but creates a relationship between the blueprint and the service for which it will be published under.

Enabling a blueprint as a catalog item

  1. Navagate to Administation -> Catalog Management -> Catalog Items. Once there find the blueprint you would like to enable, click the down arrow next to it all the way to the right, and select configure.
