Sharing a blueprint enables others to view and create copies of the blueprint, which can then be edited to suit the needs of other organizations. If you make changes to the shared blueprint in your library, they are automatically reflected in the version that is visible to other users. (If users make changes to their own copies of the item, these changes do not affect the blueprint in your library in any way.)
Note: Sharing permissions must be defined in the user’s permissions group. If you are not authorized to share blueprints, contact your system administrator.
Note: You must have a public profile before you can share library items on Ravello Repo. For details on setting up your profile, refer to Set Up Your User Profile.
Important: Make sure that the blueprint does not contain any confidential or proprietary information before sharing it.
