You can move a vApp template from one catalog in your organization to another catalog in the same organization. This is useful if you want to move a template from a published catalog to an unpublished catalog or the reverse.


  • This operation requires the rights included in the predefined vApp Author role or an equivalent set of rights.

  • Your organization must have at least two catalogs and a virtual datacenter with available space.


  1. Click Catalogs > My Organization's Catalogs.
  2. On the vApp Templates tab, right-click a vApp template and select Move To Catalog.
  3. Select a destination catalog and virtual datacenter.
    If you select a published catalog, the vApp template will be available to all organizations in the system.
  4. Click OK.


vCloud Director copies the source vApp template to the destination catalog and then deletes the source vApp template.
