Cloud Management administration guide

After you set up the Cloud Management application on your instance, there are many items that you must configure before your users can request and manage any cloud resources.


Role required: cloud_admin

About Cloud Management

Before you begin

Set up Cloud Management
See the appropriate setup guide for your cloud provider:.

What to do after setup

Create resource profiles

Resource profiles contain the attributes that a resource can have. Users select values for these attributes when they order a cloud resource. Configure these types of resource profiles: Compute (such as the size of a VM), Operating System (such as the type and version), Storage (such backup) and Security Groups (such as whether or not to use HTTPS). See Resource profiles for more information.

Configure governance

Governance tools that you can use to restrict the provisioning of cloud resources include quotas and policies. Examples of things you can configure include the approval workflow that is used after a user requests a cloud resource, whether or not an email is sent after a cloud resource is stopped, and which datacenter should be automatically selected when a user selects a resource from a specific cloud provider. See Cloud Management governance for more information.

Populate the Cloud Service Catalog
After you apply governance quotas and policies, create Service Catalog items. You can create a catalog item in the following ways:
  • Import a template from AWS or Azure
  • Use or modify a base-system catalog item
  • Generate a catalog item from a blueprint. A blueprint is a configurable template for a catalog item.
See Blueprints for more information.
