Publishing a Custom Service Definition


The service designer must publish a customized service definition before a service provisioner can use that definition to create a service request.


Predefined service definitions are already in the Published state.

To publish a service definition:

  1. In the Network Activate task pane, select Service Design > Manage Service Definitions.
  2. In the Manage Service Definitions page, select the service definition you want to publish.

    In the table, the State column lists unpublished service definitions.

  3. Select the unpublished service definition that you want to publish.
  4. Open the Actions menu and select Publish Service Definition.

    The Publish Service Definitions window appears and prompts you to confirm your action.

  5. Click Publish.

    The Manage Service Definitions page reappears. The selected service definition is now in the published state.
