Exporting or importing a service blueprint

You can export or import service blueprint .json files as needed.

When you export a blueprint, the Service Definition (the functional model) and the Service Deployment Definition (the deployment model) blueprints are combined into a single .json file, along with some additional information. Only these type of files that are exported from the Service Blueprint editor can be successfully imported back.

You can export a service blueprint or deployment blueprint from a development server and then import them into a production server.

You can currently import only two versions of service blueprints:

  • 1.0 (equivalent to BMC CLM 2.1)
  • 2.0 (equivalent to BMC CLM 3.0)
    For example, if the service blueprint version is 1.0, it was created with the Service Blueprint UI that was part of BMC CLM 2.1.

Note

When importing a blueprint, make sure that the proper operating system and software packages are present on the target server.
