CloudCenter 4.8 has reached End of Life (EOL) as of November 14, 2018. See End of Support Notices for additional context.

Grant Image Launch Permissions

This feature is only available for AWS deployments.


You can grant image launch permissions to launch VMs using supported Base OS Images to AWS cloud accounts that do not have the privilege to launch VMs using these images.

When you grant image launch permissions, you are doing so at the cloud account level. When you add a cloud account and then add a region for that cloud account, the images within that account do not have launch permissions for an image. If you subsequently add a second cloud account, the image inherits the permissions from the first cloud account – If you would like to provide Image Launch permissions for all images, then be sure to grant the permission as soon as you add the first cloud account.

When you add a new region, you must go to your existing cloud accounts and then grant permissions to the required system images.
