Publish a private (unpublished) RightScale component using the Publishing Assistant.
Important! The Publishing Assistant may be used when publishing any RightScale component (ServerTemplate, RightScript, Macro or MultiCloud Image). However, EULAs only apply to ServerTemplates, not other components. The tutorial below uses a ServerTemplate as to include every step of the Publishing Assistant process.
Table of Contents
Using the Publishing Assistant is very intuitive. This tutorial will highlight the multiple phases of using the Publishing Assistant:
While transitioning through these phases of the Publishing Assistant, you are also free to navigate to the previous or next phase at any time. The phase arrows are also actionable (Shown in below diagrams for each phase.)
For more information about sharing, please see Sharing RightScale Components.
¹ Only applies when publishing ServerTemplates.
RightScale's Publishing Assistant wizard will walk you through the process of publishing your component(s).
The first step in the sharing process is to determine which RightScale component you want to publish to the MultiCloud Marketplace. Users will need to have access to the MultiCloud Marketplace ('library' user role privileges) in order to view and import/subscribe to a shared component. You can only publish private components to the MultiCloud Marketplace. (i.e. You cannot import a premium ServerTemplate that's published by a different account and then re-publish it to the MultiCloud Marketplace.)
You must read and agree to RightScale's Publishing Agreement before continuing the publishing process.
Click the Sharing action button to proceed to the next step.
If you are publishing for the first time, you must provide the following information about your publishing organization. Later, you can edit this information under Design -> Account Library -> Your Publishing Organization. The 'Organization' tab appears the first time a user publishes from your account.
The "Sharing" section allows you to control who can import your component.
Specify your sharing preferences. Remember, when you publish a ServerTemplate, any (unpublished) private RightScripts, MultiCloud Images, and RepoPaths that are used by the ServerTemplate are implictly shared to guarantee the usability of the template itself. Click the View ServerTemplate components link to see what other components will be implicitly published.
The "Comments" section allows you to control the comment feature in the MultiCloud Marketplace.
Click the Descriptions action button to proceed to the next step.
Fill out the Short and Long Descriptions for the component. For your convenience, both description fields are pre-populated with the ServerTemplate's current description. If you have published an earlier revision, the fields are pre-populated with the previously entered short and long descriptions. However, since these description fields will be saved in the MultiCloud Marketplace's database, you can actually provide different descriptions. Note: The provided descriptions will appear in the MultiCloud Marketplace for all previously shared revisions of that component.
You can update the "New Revision Notes" as well, which are prepopulated with the component's Commit message for the selected revision.
Revision Notes are similar to commit messages in the Dashboard. They will be seen at the bottom of the shared component in the MultiCloud Marketplace. As a best practice, you should provide useful information about any changes, bug fixes, new features, especially if there's a previously published revision of that component in the MultiCloud Marketplace.
Categories allow users to more easily search for your publication in the MultiCloud Marketplace. The selected categories will be applied to all revisions of your publication. You can add multiple categories.
Click the EULAs action button to proceed to the next step.
Reminder: EULAs currently apply to ServerTemplates only. This phase is not part of the Publishing Assistant when publishing other RightScale components (RightScripts, Macros or MCIs).
Click the Preview action button to proceed to the next step.
If everything looks correct, click the Publish action button.
