Providing cloud credentials in a blueprint#
By default, when you provision an environment from a blueprint, the environment is created by using the cloud account information of its cloud project. However, when you create a blueprint for most kinds of clouds, you can specify different user credentials.
Create a blueprint for your cloud project. See Creating files.
You store credentials for each cloud project. If you modify the properties in a blueprint's source code, you can provide different credentials that are used to create individual environments.
Note: You cannot specify different user credentials for OpenStack clouds or for Microsoft™ Azure.
Obtain the credentials for the cloud account to use with your environment.
To edit a blueprint's source code, click Blueprints, select your blueprint's name, and click Source.
In the parameters section of the blueprint source code, enter the appropriate properties and credentials for your cloud type:
For Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, enter these lines:
IBM::AWS::Access_ID: type: string description:AWS ID default: 'your\_id' IBM::AWS::Secret_Key: type:string description: AWS key default: 'your\_secret\_key'
For SoftLayer® clouds, enter these lines:
IBM::SoftLayer::User: type: string description: SoftLayer ID default: 'your\_id' IBM::SoftLayer::API_Key: type: string description: SoftLayer key default: 'your\_api\_key'
For VMware, enter these lines:
IBM::VMWare::User: type: string description: VMware User default: 'your\_user\_name' IBM::VMWare::Password: type: string description: VMware password default: 'your\_password'
