Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word
|Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
"cat food" (quotation marks)
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another
cat ^ mouse
|A combination of search types

A sequenced service design is a blueprint for an orderable service. Each design includes service components created from component types or component templates that define what is automatically provisioned. You can use service designs to create a complex set of automated elements that support consistency and repeatability of common manual tasks. These service designs then become the basis for service offerings, which support IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and IT Service Management (ITSM) best practices.
A sequenced service design includes the following:
- A hierarchy of service components (see Service components). The hierarchy of service components, along with the Processing Order configured for each service component, defines the order of execution that occurs when the design is provisioned.
Resource offerings, which can be added to service components to enable the added resource offerings to be provisioned along with the service components.
- Lifecycle actions, allow you to configure provisioning and de-provisioning actions for a service component. See Lifecycle actions for service components.
- Properties, allow you to configure user-defined properties for service components. See Service Component Properties
Property mappings, allow you to configure the property of a component to obtain its value from the property of another component. See Property mapping.
- Subscriber Options, allow you to expose service design options in the Offerings area of the Cloud Service Management Console and the Marketplace Portal. See Sequenced design subscriber options.
- Upgradability relationships, allow you to add, configure, and remove upgradability relationships between service designs. See Upgradability .
To navigate to the sequenced design area
- In the Cloud Service Management Console initial dashboard view, click the Design tile.
- Click the Sequenced tile, which takes you to the landing page for sequenced designs, allowing access to the Designer, Components, and Resource Offerings tiles.
To design a sequenced service
Follow these high-level steps to design a sequenced service:
- Based on the needs of your organization, create a plan for resource providers, components, lifecycle actions, and other design elements before you begin implementing your design.
- Configure the resource providers and resource offerings to deploy the service. See Providers and Resource offerings for sequenced designs.
- Create component types and templates (see Create a Component Type and Create component templates) or use out-of-the-box component types and templates (see Components (Sequenced Designs)).
- Create the service design. See Add a service design.
- Use the Designer to create a hierarchy of service components. See Sequenced Designer and Create a service component.
- Associate resource offerings with service components. See Associate resource offerings with service components.
- Create lifecycle actions for service components. See Lifecycle actions for service components.
- Create and map properties for service components. See Service Component Properties and Property mapping.
- Create subscriber options for a service design. See Sequenced design subscriber options.
- Complete the service design (blueprint) and publish the design. This makes the service design eligible for selection as the basis of a service offering in the Offerings area. See Add a service design.
