When you create a VM sizing policy, it is not visible to tenants. You can publish VM sizing policy to an organization VDC to make it available to tenants.

Publishing a VM sizing policy to an organization VDC makes the policy visible to tenants. The tenant can select the policy when they create a new standalone VM or a VM from a template, edit a VM, add a VM to a vApp, and create a vApp from a vApp template. You cannot delete a VM sizing policy that is available to tenants.



  1. From the top navigation bar, select Resources and click Cloud Resources.
  2. In the left panel, click Organization VDCs.
  3. Select an organization VDC and click the VM Sizing Policies tab.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Select the VM sizing policies that you want to add to the organization VDC and click OK.

What to do next

  • Select a policy and click Remove to unpublish the policy.
  • Select a VM sizing policy and click Set as default to make that policy appear as the default choice for the tenants during a VM and vApp creation and VM edit. If there is more than one VM sizing policy published for an organization VDC, the tenant can select a different policy from the default one.
