    • Manual: A catalog task for specifying provisioning information is assigned to the Cloud Operators group with no automatic selections. The cloud operator can review the settings before closing the task.
  3. When you have configured all settings and the catalog item is ready for use by Cloud users, click Publish.
    The system adds the ARM template item to the catalog.
