Working with the eZDeploy utility
The eZDeploy utility is a command-line-based interface utility to export and import BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management service blueprints, service offerings, services, and software packages. With this utility, you can import the downloaded content from BMC Communities and the appropriate artifacts in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management (service blueprints with option and option choices and service catalog), BMC Server Automation (BL packages), and BMC Atrium Orchestrator (Atrium Orchestrator workflows) to create a service offering in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management. You can also use this utility to share your service blueprints, service offerings, services, and software packages with the rest of the BMC Communities and allow them to use your cloud deployment's best practices.
The BMC eZDeploy toolkit is validated with the .eZ packages of BMC Zipkits for BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management uploaded in BMC Communities. Before using this toolkit for importing or exporting other service blueprints service offerings, services, and software packages, refer to the Limitations of the eZDeploy utility.
