A Blueprint is a template which has been loaded in to a catalog. Stacks are launched and deployed from blueprints. Once a template has been created it needs to be added to a catalog. You can view, create, update and delete blueprints using the Dell Cloud Manager Blueprint Tools commands or from the Dell Cloud Manager console Manage Catalog page.

Viewing and managing blueprints in the public catalog requires manage public catalog admin authority. Viewing and managing blueprints in a company catalog requires manage the company catalog authority.

Blueprint Versioning

As an option you can maintain multiple versions of a blueprint inside Dell Cloud Manager. However only one version of a blueprint can exist in a catalog (be active) and be available for non administrator users to launch stacks from. For more details refer to the Managing Blueprint Versions section in this guide.
