A configuration scenario consists of multiple service definitions. A configuration profile can be assigned to one or more service definitions in a configuration scenario.

You can create multiple configuration scenarios for your system infrastructure.

The same service definition can be active within multiple configuration scenarios. If a service definition is not active in any configuration scenario, the corresponding endpoint is deleted.
