Define a provisioning rule

Provisioning rules auto-configure cloud resources. When a user requests a cloud resource, each provisioning rule (in the specified order) compares the requested resource against the conditions in the rule. If the request meets all conditions, then the system assigns a value to the variables that are specified in the rule.

About this task

There are two components to a provisioning rule:
  • Assignments: An assignment specifies the variable to configure and the value to set for the variable. Provisioning rules typically include several assignments.
  • Conditions: Conditions that are compared to the request to determine when to apply the rule and perform the assignments.
Note: When any rule is triggered, no additional rules are evaluated.
