Sharing an Appliance Template in a Collaboration Workspace

Written by Elaine Muus - 13 june 2013

The main purpose of the collaboration workspace is to share appliance templates with a group of users. This is not the same as sharing a template on the Marketplace. A template in a collaboration workspace is only visible to members of the workspace. A template on the Marketplace is available to all the members of an organization.

To share a template, do the following:

  1. Go to the Collaboration tab.

  2. If you have several workspaces, select the workspace you want to add your template to on the left.

  3. Go to the Shared Templates page.

  4. Click on "share" in the top right. This opens your own templates.

  5. Select an appliance from your list of templates and click "share".

  6. Select a category from the drop-down menu.

  7. Modify or add a description in the Product Highlights section.

  8. You can deselect "Allow to add comments" if you do not want other users to comment on your template.

  9. Click "share" to push the template to the collaboration workspace.


Once a template has been shared, other users in the workspace can import it into their private appliance library by clicking import. They can then modify, use and share the appliance as they wish.

Any changes you make to your original appliance will NOT be propagated to the shared copy in the collaboration workspace. You will need to share the new version again for members of your workspace to see the changes. The older version will be overwritten.
