edit the currently applied template. Another window opens to allow you to edit the
contents of the template. When you are done editing, click the SAVE TEMPLATE button.

your local hard drive.

- Select Use template from URL to choose a different template from a web address.
Note: The URL must point to a template (max size: 460,800 bytes) anywhere publically available that you have read
permissions to, located in the same region as the stack. The maximum length of the URL itself is 1024 characters long.
A Warning dialog opens if you are trying to use a template that was not originally designed for this cloud (for example,
using an AWS template on a Eucalyptus cloud). Based on the information provided on the Warning dialog, you can either:
- Expand Details to convert unsupported parameters
- Click the I Understand, Use This Template button and all the unsupported
parameters will convert automatically
- Click Go back, I want to select a different
template to discard the current template
selection and repeat the above steps to choose another
If you are trying to use an AWS template that contains services and resources that
Eucalyptus does not yet support, a Warning dialog box opens.
Click to expand Details to view the unsupported items.
Any remaining unsupported items will be automatically removed.
Once the chosen template is free of incompatible items, click I Understand, Use This Template
If you edit a template and it passes validation, the next tab automatically opens.
Otherwise, click the Next button to advance to the Parameters tab.
