I am returning to this issue with templates and am puzzled after several hours of digging around the docs and trying some log statements.
In the drop down where I select the template, I can see where the service dialog is executing a method which queries vmdb for the first provider, and then loops through the miq_templates on provider object, and then returns the friendly names of those templates to be presented in the dialog. However, I can’t figure out where one views or edits those templates. They’re in the database, but how does one manage them? It’s not something coming from my cloud vendor (Azure) is it?
In the Compute–>Clounds–>Instances–>Images portion of the UI I can see available images which bear the very same names as the miq_template friendly names returned by my script query, but not all of these images show up in the results of that template query.
Lastly, when you suggest I check my template’s icon… I’m only familiar with instances having those icons, not templates. Where do I find template icons?? Or are they somehow synonymous with instance icons?? That doesn’t seem right.
What am I missing here?
Thank you very much!
