You can create a launch template using the following methods:

Note
  • Each account can create a maximum of 30 launch templates per region.
  • All parameters are optional when you create a template using the ECS console. However, if the template that you want to use to create an instance does not have all required parameters (such as an image), then you must specify the required parameters at instance creation.
  • A template cannot be modified after it is created.

Create a template in the ECS console

  1. Log on to the ECS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, select Launch Template, and then click Create Template.


  3. Go to the Launch Template page and complete the basic configurations and advanced configurations.
    Note During your first template creation, the Clone Template area is unavailable. If you have already created templates, you can select an existing template, and version, and then modify its configurations.
  4. On the Confirm Configuration page, enter a template name and description, and then click Create Launch Template.


    Note All parameters are optional when you create a template. However, on the Confirm Configuration page, we recommend that you configure the required parameters so that you can create instances in one click as needed.
