Templates are the folders within catalogs in VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension.
For every OVA file that you upload, VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension creates a folder with the OVA filename and extracts the OVF, MF, and VMDK files to the folder.
You can also manually create a template within a catalog and upload OVF and VMDK files to that folder.
Verify that you have the required set of rights to create a template in a catalog.
