You can create a template using the following methods:

Note
  • In each region, one user account can only create a maximum of 30 launch templates.
  • 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 once you have created it.

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. On the Confirm Configuration page, we recommend that you configure the required parameters so that you can create instances in one click later. You can also leave the parameter settings unchanged.
  5. In the Activated dialog box, click View Template to view the template you have created.

Create a template on the ECS buy page

  1. Go to the ECS product details page, and then click Buy Now.
  2. On the ECS buy page, configure the parameters.
  3. On the Preview page, click Save as launch template.
  4. In the dialog box that appears, select Create Template, enter a template name and description, and then click Save.
  5. In the Activated dialog box, click View Template to view the template you have created.
