We proposed an orchestrator in which service providers construct multiple services by cooperating with each other at one stop without being conscious of individual services in order to respond to the B2B2X (Business to Business to X) business model which provides services service providers by flexibly and easily combining services of each field. The advantage of this orchestrator is that a Catalog-Driven Architecture which operates by defining service specifications, resource specifications, and collaboration methods in its catalog. This feature provides flexibility for adding new services and APIs. However, as the service specifications become more complicated, the contents of catalogs tend to become more complicated, and there is a problem that knowledge is required to generate catalogs. In this paper, we propose a method to automatically generate a GUI and a catalog output function for supporting catalog creation used in orchestrators based on catalog definition templates. And then, we evaluate and confirm the feasibility of the proposed method through experiments.
