You can use a vApp template from a content library to create new vApp on a host or a cluster in your vSphere inventory.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client, select Home > Content Libraries and click the Objects tab.
  2. Select a content library, and click the Templates tab.
  3. Right-click a vApp template and select New vApp from This Template.
  4. On the Select name and location page, enter a name and select a location for the vApp, and click Next.
  5. On the Select a resource page, select an object to deploy the vApp to and click Next.

    In VMware Cloud on AWS, that might be a Workload folder or resource pool.

  6. On the Review details page, verify the template details and click Next.
  7. On the Select storage page, select disk format and a storage resource for the vApp.
  8. On the Select networks page, select a destination network for each source network.
  9. On the Ready to Complete page, review the configurations you made for the vApp, and click Finish.


A new task for creating the vApp appears in the Recent Tasks pane. After the task is complete, the new vApp is created.
