Import VM templates from public cloud providers such as Amazon AWS and Azure ARM and use them in the multicloud platform
To import a template from a public cloud region into the platform's template cache, do the following steps:
Enter the search criteria for your template
For example, ami-0354b96a
Note: You can search for Azure templates by ID with two different formats:
Search for this text in each template Name and Description. The search is not case sensitive
Any, Windows or Other. The default value is Any
|Publisher||Selector||Filter by publisher names, as available in some providers, e.g. Azure. Type a publisher name to open a drop-down selection list.|
Private images that are only available to your user account in the public cloud provider
vCloud Director: display templates in the same organization
Public images that are available to all users in the public cloud provider
vCloud Director: display templates in other organizations
Then click Search to perform the search. The search can take some time and return several pages of templates.
To see more details of a template, move the mouse over it to display a tooltip tool tip with template details.
To import a template, click the Import import symbol in the top right-hand corner of the template.
When a template has been imported, the color of the Import symbol will change to gray. You can import many templates in one session.
