A single enterprise can create multiple catalogs in Service Catalog. Each catalog has a unique name, a description, and a collection of solutions.
Form Schema builds on JSON schema form, which is an open source schema written in JSON for specifying and validating a set of parameters. Cloud admins can use Form Schema to create forms that allow users to customize Deployment Manager (DM) template-based solutions before launching the solutions.
A solution is an entry in a catalog.
A solution can be one of the following:
- Reference link
- Cloud Deployment Manager (DM) template
- Terraform configuration
- Google Cloud Marketplace product
A reference link is a Service Catalog solution that has a landing page and a web link. The web link can point anywhere.

A user is an enterprise user who has access to Service Catalog solutions.
