To import a template from a public cloud region into the platform's template cache, do the following steps:

  1. Go to Apps library → Public → select the public cloud region
  2. Then click the Import template button at the bottom of the screen
  3. The Import template popup will open

  4. Enter the search criteria for your template.

    1. In the ID field, this can be an ID, such as an AMI ID, or in the Name field it can be text to search for in the name 
    2. Private templates are images that are only available to your user account in the public cloud provider. In vCloud Director this option displays templates in the same organization as your user

    Then click Search to perform the search. The search can take some time and return several pages of templates

  5. To import a template, click the import symbol in the top right-hand corner of the template

    1. If your Azure template has terms of use, then you will need to accept these now or when you first create a VM from the template. 
      1. Accepting the terms of use requires the privilege to Manage virtual machine template terms of use and it enables programmatic deployment of the template for your Azure subscription. If you then disable programmatic deployment in the portal but you would like to deploy the template, you will need to delete it from the platform and import it again.
      2. If you share the template with another enterprise, then a user of that enterprise will need to accept the terms of use before they can create a VM

    When a template has been imported, the color of the import symbol will change to gray

  6. When you have finished importing templates click Close
