A Macro is an executable snapshot or description of a configured component that you can later run to recreate it. You can create a macro of a deployment, array, server, or something else that you define. For example, if you create a macro of an existing deployment, it will include all of the added servers' attributes, as well as input parameters and cloud-specific attributes that are either set at the deployment or server level. Macros are useful for creating a "snapshot" of a deployment that you can later run in order to recreate that same deployment. Macros are especially useful for sharing purposes where you can share a macro with sub-accounts. For example, you could create a macro of your developer's "beta" deployment and share it with the QA and Marketing team so that they can recreate the "beta" deployment in their own account for testing purposes. Since there is no version control for macros, it must be "locked" before it can be shared/published.
