Managing entitlement packages
Entitlement packages are groups of requestable offerings that you want to make available to one or more tenant companies. These packages are created from the Entitlement Packages tab in the Service Catalog workspace, as described in Creating entitlement packages. For overview information about the packages, see Entitlement packages overview.
When you create a new tenant or import an existing one, you can make the entitlement packages available to the users belonging to the tenant by selecting from the list of entitlement packages. Within a few minutes, the service offering in the packages listed in the Selected Entitlement Packages table is available for the tenant's users to request in the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management – My Cloud Services Console. For details, see Creating and importing tenants.
From the Tenant Management pane, you can manage the entitlement packages and decide what packages to make available for tenants.
As a cloud administrator, you can decide to create new, or edit existing packages and make them available to the tenants.
