Blueprints are created from application instance designs, either draft designs or designs with all VMs running.
To create a blueprint:
1 On the Applications page, open the instance based on which you want to create blueprint.
2 (Optional) On the design tab for that instance, edit the design as required.
3 Click Save as Blueprint. The Taking Snapshot dialog box is displayed.
4 To take a snapshot without shutting down the VM, select No Shutdown,
To shut down the VMs before taking the snapshot, select Shutdown.
The VMs will be restarted after the snapshot.
5 Click OK. The Save as Blueprint dialog box is displayed.
6 Enter a name for the blueprint and click OK. The blueprint is added to the Blueprints library.
Note: The blueprint capture process might take a few minutes.
Note: If you don't have the right permissions, this option won't be available in the UI and you will need to request from the Organization Admin to grant you the right permissions.
