Creating virtual machines and databases

If you have been assigned the self_service role to a project in IBM® Cloud PowerVC Manager, you can use a deploy template to create a virtual machine or database (if the Database as a Service technical preview has been installed) based on an image.

To create a virtual machine or database, follow these steps.
  1. Log in to the appropriate project and open the Deploy Templates page.
  2. Select the deploy template that you want to use and click Deploy. In the page that opens, specify the requested details. If available, you can optionally modify the specified databases and database users.
  3. Depending on the policies associated with the project, this action might require administrator approval before it actually starts. In this case, a request is created. To view the status of your requests, use the Requests area at the top of the PowerVC window.
