2. Fill out the appropriate details for the CLC Managed Oracle MySQL Enterprise Blueprint.

**NOTE** Please ensure the Install and Registration is executed on the same server.


3. Verify the information is correct (pictured below).


4. Once verified, click on the 'deploy blueprint' button. You will be presented with the deployment details along with an email stating the Blueprint has been queued.
