Create an application profile

An application profile specifies application software to install on newly-provisioned resources. Users can select applications when they request a stack. Use application profiles when you integrate with Configuration Management (continuous delivery) providers such as Ansible playbooks.

Before you begin

  • Role required: sn_cmp.cloud_admin
  • You must have a cloud account with datacenters. You must run Discovery on the service accounts to populate the datacenters.
