Verify that the DCAE Blueprint is Deployed

The DCAE controller requires a blueprint (or guideline) to be available at the site on which the first VNF is deployed. This blueprint is a management workflow and configuration description for a given VNF, and it must be available after completing the service distribution process and before beginning the instantiation process.
