Managing Abstract Resource Templates
This article explains how to create and manage abstract resource templates that can be added to different blueprints as abstract resources.
Abstract resources enable you to add a set of requirements, such as resource model and/or specific attribute values instead of adding a specific resource. When reserving a blueprint that has an abstract resource, CloudShell will find resources that meet the resource requirements and are available for the time slot of the sandbox, and add them to the sandbox. You cannot add abstract resources to a sandbox.
The Abstract Templates page in the Inventory dashboard enables you to control which templates the users will have access to when creating dynamic blueprints.
