Building service blueprints

Service blueprints define the software, hardware, and deployment options for a service in the Service Catalog. A service blueprint is required before you can create a service. For service blueprint overview information, see Service blueprints overview. For more information about building service blueprints, see the following topics:

After creating a service blueprint, you can use the blueprint when creating a service, as described in Creating cloud services.
