Specify service attributes

To specify service attributes in a blueprint:

  1. Login in to CloudShell Portal as administrator.
  2. Click Lab Management > Blueprints
  3. Click + Create Blueprint. If the Select from Templates context menu is displayed, click Create Empty Blueprint.
  4. A new blank blueprint is displayed in the Blueprint Catalog.

  5. In the toolbar, click App / Service.

    The Add App / Service pane is displayed.

  6. Drag the required service into the blueprint canvas. For the purposes of this procedure, a service called Apache HTTP is added.

    The Add Service dialog box is displayed.

  7. To make an attribute available as a required data-entry field to users of the blueprint, click the publish icon:

    Note: If you need to modify the attribute so that it is no longer published, click the publish icon again.

  8. To add the service to the blueprint, click Add.
