You can edit an AppStack to change its name, description, the type of OS to which it is attached, and the number of attachments of the AppStack.

The Filename and the Path variables are set when the AppStack is created and cannot be updated.
Important: When you specify a limit for the number of attachments for an AppStack, all applications that are captured within the AppStack are limited by this number. If you want to enforce an attachment limit for a single application, that application has to be captured separately in a separate AppStack.


Ensure that the AppStack you want to edit is provisioned. See Provision An AppStack.


  1. From the App Volumes Manager console, go to VOLUMES (2.X) > AppStacks.
  2. Select the AppStack that you want to edit and click Edit.
  3. Update the name, description, or OS type and click Save.
  4. (Optional) Check the Limit Attachments box to limit the number of active attachments for the AppStack.
