The documentation in this section is intended for developers and operators interested in creating Managed Services for Cloud Foundry. Managed Services are defined as having been integrated with Cloud Foundry through APIs, and allow 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.
To develop Managed Services for Cloud Foundry, you need a Cloud Foundry instance to test your service broker with as you are developing it. You must have admin access to your Cloud Foundry instance to manage service brokers and the services marketplace catalog. For local development, Cloud Foundry recommends using the BOSH guide to deploy your own local instance of Cloud Foundry using VirtualBox.
