Chapter 2. Examining the Provisioning Dialog

Understanding provisioning dialogs is important when working with services in CloudForms. Every provider in CloudForms comes with a sample provisioning dialog covering the options specific to that provider. The process begins with the provisioning dialog, which presents the basic configuration options for a virtual machine or instance. The options presented are dependent on the provider you are using. For instance, a cloud provider might have flavors of instances, whereas an infrastructure provider might allow you to set the memory size or number of CPUs on a virtual machine.

To see the sample provisioning dialog for Red Hat Virtualization:

  1. Navigate to AutomationAutomateCustomization.
  2. Expand the Provisioning Dialogs accordion and select Sample RedHat VM Provisioning Dialog under VM Provision.

This is a textual representation of the dialog you will get when you provision a virtual machine.
