You can manually add supplied and required service interfaces to the VMs in your design to provide entry points for accessing the application functionality.
If you know that all of the design objects are part of a network that communicates using DHCP or are on the same subnet with automatic IP address assignment, you do not need to manually create the connection; Ravello creates the network for you.
To configure the service interfaces:
1 Add the necessary service interfaces as follows:
- To add a supplied service, click the tool and then drag and drop it on top of the virtual machine image object. Alternatively, you can right-click the image object and select Create Supplied Service.
- To add a required service, click the tool and then drag and drop it on top of virtual machine image object. Alternatively, you can right-click the image object and select Create Required Service.
2 To manually connect a supplied service to a required service, select one service, then click and drag the cursor to the second service. A connecting line is added to the blueprint.
The services must be of different types (supplied and required) and must be located on separate VM objects.
Multiple required services can be connected to a single supplied service.
Tip: When you click on a service, its details are displayed in the VM Properties pane in editable format.
