Registering resource providers

Before BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management can use a resource provider, you must first register an instance of that resource provider. For overview information, see Resource provider overview.

The default provider instances are registered while running the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installation program and do not need to be registered again. Only new resource providers, including new instances of current resource providers, custom resource providers, and third-party resource providers, need to be registered using this procedure.


To create a provider instance, see ProviderDefinition class.

To register a provider

  1. From the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management Administration Console, click the vertical Workspaces menu on the left side of the window and select Providers.
  2. Under Quick Links, select the type of provider you want to register, such as Compute or PaaS.
  3. On the Providers page, click the Register icon .
  4. In the Register Provider dialog box, choose the Provider Type. The options available can vary depending on the type of provider you selected in the previous step.

  5. To continue registration, choose one of the following procedures, depending on the type of provider you selected:

After you register a resource provider, you can then onboard resources from that provider as described in Editing and removing resources.
