    Editable Templates

      I have a couple of templates in my catalog. I cannot change the maximum values for blueprints. I basically want my end users to be able to choose no of CPU's and memory in the range i have specified. Now the values are locked and cannot be changed.

          This seems odd, are they global and the user you're attempting to do this has read only??

           

          What interface type and/or provisioning workflow did you choose??  Screenshot??

            I'm doing it as an administrator who has all the privileges. I need to get to my workplace to provide you with screenshots. but i was just wondering. Will the range of CPU and memory to choose from come only if you provide a min and max value in the blueprint? Or is there an option where you can make these values editable? i have done this before just don't remember how

              Well, they do come from opting a Min and Max values on blueprints, BTW, is your blueprint configured at the minimum level of CPU and RAM? I think that if it is configured for 4vCPU and 6GB RAM lets say, vCAC won't be able to configure it in values under that.
              So be sure to configure the templates to the bare minimum resource levels you want.

               

              Also, I'm pretty sure there's some way of setting this without the blueprint's definition, as eventually this is a custom property. The question is, is it a custom property that's editable via regular user or just via the blueprint Min/Max definition

                I made it work. But for vsphere. For templates from vCD it's locked and I'm not able to give max values.

                  That would explain it.  I think this is in the v6.0 release, but I'd have to check the Beta and see if this is there.

                      So maybe this is a vCAC 5.1 issue, wonder if Abhilash can confirm the version?

                          Yes its 5.1. Good this is fixed in 5.2 and later release. Time to upgrade then

                          Thanks for the confirmation oKushmaro. And also pfleisher for your support
