Provider administrators can select or create global image and flavor mappings that can be assigned to vRealize Automation Cloud tenants.

Global image and flavor mapping enables you to quickly set up mappings that apply to multiple tenants. You can also quickly update these mappings. The tenant management page also enables you to create tenant specific image and flavor mappings that can override the default comfigurations.

Note: Image and flavor mappings configured on the Tenant Management page apply only to tenants as configured and are not applicable to the broader provider organization.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. In Cloud Assembly select Manage Tenants.
    The Tenant Management page shows all tenants configured for the administrator's organization in a card view.
  2. Select Image Mapping on the Tenant Management page left menu.
    The Image Mapping page displays all image currently configured for tenants in Cloud Assembly and imdicates whether the mappings are global or associated with a specific tenant.

  3. Select Add Image Mapping to add an image mapping for use with tenants.
    1. Select the Account/Region to which the image mapping will apply.
    2. Enter a name for the image mapping and select the specific image instance or version to which it relates.
    3. Enter any desired constraint tags.
    4. Select the scope for the image mapping. The scope can be either Alll tenants, or global, or you can select a specific tenant to which the image mapping will apply.
  4. If desired, you can use a cloud configuration script to define custom OS characteristics for deployments.
    For example, based on whether you are deploying a cloud template to a public or private cloud, you can apply specific user permissions, OS permissions, or other conditions to the image. A cloud configuration script adheres to a cloud-init format for Linux-based images or a cloudbase-init format for Windows-based images. See Learn more about image mappings in vRealize Automation Cloud for more information.
  5. Click Create to create the image mapping.
  6. Select Add Flavor Mapping to add a flavor mapping for use with tenants.
    1. Select the Account/Region to which the flavor mapping will apply.
    2. Enter a name for the flavor mapping you are creating.
    3. Select the Size parameters for the flavor mapping you are creating.
      You can specify the number of processors and the amount of memory for this flavor.
    4. Select the scope for the flavor mapping. The scope can be either Alll tenants, or global, or you can select a specific tenant to which the flavor mapping will apply. All tenants applies to all tenants in the provider administrator's organization.
  7. Click Create to create the flavor mapping.
