Comments 2 Posted In Red Hat Virtualization API: How to create a template via the API ? Latest response 2012-11-15T19:49:21+00:00 Hi I've been all over the API doc but I can't find anywhere that describes how to create a template (i.e. the equiv. of the Make Template button) ? Any clues ?

You'll need to specify the template name and id of the source VM. Here is an example using curl: curl --cacert $rhevm_cert -u "$user:$password" -H "Content-Type: application/xml" -X POST -d "<template><name>TestTemplate</name><vm id='3564e03a-ef1c-439c-b92b-8a4907622516'/></template>" https://$rhevm_host/api/templates Creating a template is documented in the API documentation in Example 14.2. https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.0/html/REST_API_Guide/chap-REST_API_Guide-Templates.html Tony Guru 2356 points 15 November 2012 7:49 PM Richard Davis Genius!
