You can copy a vApp template from one catalog in your organization to another catalog in the same organization. This is useful if the catalogs are shared with different users and you want both groups of users to have access to the vApp template.


  • 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 Copy to Catalog.
  3. Type a name and optional description for the vApp template.
  4. Select the destination catalog and virtual datacenter.
    If you select a published catalog, the vApp template will be available to all organizations in the vCloud Director installation.
  5. Click OK.
