Create a New ServerTemplate


To create a ServerTemplate for launching new instances on one or more cloud infrastructures

Table of Contents


  • 'designer' user role privileges


ServerTemplates are cloud-agnostic. However, each ServerTemplate references a single MultiCloud Image (MCI) object. It is the MultiCloud Image object that actually defines into which clouds you can launch a server instance. See MultiCloud Images for more information. When you add a server to a deployment from a ServerTemplate, you can only add that server to a cloud that the MultiCloud Image supports. When you create a ServerTemplate, you must either select an existing MultiCloud Image or create one "on-the-fly" and specify at least one image for a particular cloud. 


Go to Design > ServerTemplates and click New.

You will need to provide some basic information about your new ServerTemplate.  

  • Nickname – A short nickname that helps you recognize the ServerTemplate.
  • Description – A short description of the ServerTemplate.
  • MultiCloud Image – You can either select an existing MultiCloud Image or create a new MultiCloud Image at this time.  If possible, we recommend using one of the default MultiCloud Images from RightScale or creating a custom MultiCloud Image beforehand.  If you choose to create a New MultiCloud Image at this time, you will need to specify an image for a cloud.  Later, you can add other clouds to the MultiCloud Image that you just created, under its Clouds tab (Design > MultiCloud Images).
