Starting from UCS version 2.1 there is an option to rename service-profiles and templates in UCS. If you’re running 2.0 or lower then the only way to rename is to clone service profile make some changes and delete the original, you can read about this here.

  3. Right click on the service profile you want to rename ans choose Rename Service Profile

Rename service profile in CLI

  1. Use SSH client to connect to UCS CLI
  2. You have to know where the service profile you want to rename is located. In my case it is in the root. Type:
    scope org /
    ‘/’ is a location of service profile. If it is in sub-organization then you have to provide then name for it
  3. To select service profile type:
    scope service-profile name
    ‘name’ is a name of the service profile you selecting
  4. to rename type:
    rename-to newname
    ‘newname’ is the name you renaming profile to

    Hi Andrius, thanks for this post, just want to add as of 2.1(2a) you are able to rename service profiles as you mention in your post, but you are not able to rename service profile templates.
