In the past, the Resource Orchestration Service (ROS) console could only save sample templates provided by Alibaba Cloud, not user templates. User templates are stored in local storage, which is inconvenient. Now, you can use My Template in the ROS console to manage your templates.

  1. Log on to the ROS console.
  2. Click My Template in the left-side navigation pane. On the My Template page, click Create Template to start creating your template.
  3. Enter the template name, template description, and template data in JSON format. Click Create to create a new template.
    Notice The template content you enter must conform to JSON format. Otherwise, template creation fails.
    For more information about template creation, see
    • Template structure and related documents linked in that document.
    • Alternatively, follow the instructions provided in Edit templates using Visual Editor.
    • If you already have a template file stored elsewhere, you can also select URL as the Template Source and enter a URL that points to your template. Then, click Extract to create a template from the file.

Manage existing templates

  1. Log on to the ROS console.
  2. Click My Template in the left-side navigation pane. The My Template page appears, with all your templates listed. Enter a template name in the search bar to search for the template.
  3. Click the template name to view template metadata and content.
  4. Manage existing templates. Each template supports Edit, Delete and Create Stack.
    • Click Edit to update the template (the method used to edit templates is the same as that used to create the template).
    • Click Delete to delete the template.
    • Click Create Stack to go to the resource stack creation page.
