Blueprint actions

There are also action buttons to upload a blueprint, create deployment, delete blueprint or edit blueprint copy in Cloudify Composer.

Uploading a Blueprint

  1. Click the Upload button.
  2. In the Upload Blueprint dialog, provide the URL of the remote archive in which the blueprint is located or select a local blueprint archive.
  3. Enter the Blueprint name and Blueprint YAML file.
    Blueprint name is the name with which you want to identify this blueprint once uploaded.
    Blueprint YAML file is the name of the YAML file in the archive that you want to upload as the main blueprint - as there can be multiple files in the archive. If a blueprint filename field is omitted, the default blueprint.yaml filename is used, but if a file under that name does not exist in the archive, an error message will appear.
  4. (Optional) Provide a .png file URL or select a local one, to appear as an icon in the catalog or table view next to the blueprint name.
  5. Choose the blueprint’s visibility by clicking on the icon in the top right corner:
    Resource visibility.
    The default visibility is “Tenant”, and according to the logged-in user’s permissions you can also choose other levels of resource visibilities.
  6. Click Upload.

Deploying a Blueprint

  1. Click the deploy icon Deploy icon.
  2. In the Deploy Blueprint dialog, specify a name for your deployment.
  3. Specify the required deployment inputs.
    The names of the default input values appear in the inputs fields. You can leave these defaults or override them with new values. Input’s description (on hovering help icon Help icon) might help you understand how to fill-in the proper value. An alternative for providing the inputs is to specify a .yaml file containing the relevant values.
  4. Click Deploy to deploy the blueprint or Deploy & Install to deploy and execute install workflow on it.

Create a deployment

Deleting a Blueprint

Click the delete icon Delete icon and confirm deletion in the displayed dialog.
