    The eZDeploy utility is a command line-based interface utility that is used to export and import BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management service blueprints. With the help of this tool you will be able to easily import the downloaded content available from contentpacks.bmc.com and organize in the right manner in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management, BMC Server Automation, and BMC Atrium Orchestrator to be created as a Service Offering in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management. Additionally, you can use this tool if you have developed the service blueprint which you would like to share with the rest of the BMC communities to help them benefit from the best practices knowledge that the particular organization has in deploy and is managing a particular OS/MW/RTE stack.

    • Service blueprints are exported and imported along with all BMC Server Automation artifacts (system package, software packages, installable resources, and NSH Scripts). Prior to the eZDeploy utility, only the service blueprint was exported.
    • BMC Atrium Orchestrator workflows, if any, can also be exported and imported. Prior to the eZDeploy utility, BMC Atrium Orchestrator workflows could not be imported.
    • Product Catalog entries from the Definitive Media Library is linked to the blueprint during import. Prior to the eZDeploy utility, since BMC Server Automation artifacts could not be imported, no Product Catalog entries could be created during import.
    • Options, post deployment actions, and operations if any, are exported and imported. Prior to the eZDeploy utility, post deployment actions, and operations could not be exported or imported.
