Services

The documentation in this section is intended for developers and operators interested in creating Managed Services for Pivotal Web Services (PWS). Managed Services are defined as having been integrated with PWS through APIs, and enable end users to provision reserved resources and credentials on demand. For documentation targeted at end users, such as how to provision services and integrate them with apps, see Services Overview.

To develop Managed Services for PWS, you need a PWS instance to test your service broker with as you are developing it. You must have admin access to your PWS instance to manage service brokers and the services marketplace catalog. For local development, Pivotal recommends using the BOSH guide to deploy your own local instance of PWS using VirtualBox.
