Part 1: Create

This is Part 1 of a multi-part, self-paced quick start exercise that will focus on creating and sharing a blueprint across projects within an organization.


What Will You Do

In part 1, you will:

  • Create a new Project in your Org
  • Create a cluster blueprint
  • Share the blueprint across projects
  • Apply the blueprint to a cluster

Step 1: Create Project

In this step, we will create a new project which will serve as logically isolated "operating environment" (sub tenant).

Note

Creating a project requires "Org Admin" privileges.

We will create a project named "central". This project will be used to house the source blueprint we will create in an upcoming step.

  • Create a new project called "central"

New Project

  • Switch context to the "central" project by clicking on the project in the web console

Step 2: Create Blueprint

In this step, we will create a custom blueprint based off the "minimal" blueprint.

  • Navigate to the previously created "central" project in your Org
  • Select Infrastructure -> Blueprints
  • Click "New Blueprint"
  • Enter a name for the blueprint
  • Select "Custom Blueprint" for the Type
  • Click "Save"

New Blueprint

Next, create a blueprint version for this custom blueprint.

  • Enter the "Version Name"
  • Select the minimal blueprint as the base blueprint
  • Click "Save Changes"

New Blueprint

Step 3: Share Blueprint

In this step, we will share the previously created custom blueprint with the project where your cluster is located.

  • Navigate to the previously created "central" project in your Org
  • Select Infrastructure -> Blueprints
  • Click the "Manage Sharing" icon near the previously created blueprint

Share Blueprint

  • Select "Specific Projects"
  • Select the project where your cluster is located
  • Click "Save"

Share Blueprint

You will now see the blueprint is shared across projects.

Share Blueprint


Step 4: Apply Blueprint

In this step, we will apply the blueprint to the existing cluster in the downstream project.

  • Navigate to the project in your Org where the cluster is located.
  • Select Infrastructure -> Clusters
  • Click the gear icon on the cluster card
  • Select "Update Blueprint"
  • Select the previosuly created and shared blueprint
  • Select the blueprint version
  • Click "Save and Publish"

Apply Blueprint

The blueprint will begin to be applied to the cluster.

Apply Blueprint

The blueprint is now applied to the cluster.

Apply Blueprint


Recap

Congratulations! At this point, you have successfully created, shared and applied a custom cluster blueprint across projects.
