My Template Groups

My Template Groups allow you to create own license groups for your own personal/custom templates. The groups cannot be shared amongst the users. Also, for Windows-based templates, My Template Groups provide the possibility to use your own licensing type regardless of your bucket. 

For your convenience, My Template Groups have hierarchical (tree) structure:

  • Template group – e.g.OS
  • Child group
  • Templates

You may assign templates directly to the group, or create a child group(s) and assign templates there.


Add Template Group


To add a template group:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > Cloud > Templates > My Template Groups menu.
  2. On the page that follows, click the "+" button.
  3. Give a name to your group in the window that appeared.
  4. If you are planning to use this group for Windows templates, specify the Windows Licensing type: MAK, KMS, or Own (user license).

    This licensing type will apply to all templates directly in the group and in the child groups.

  5. For KMS licensing, set the following parameters:
    • Server label – the name of the KMS server
    • KMS server host – the hostname of the licensing server
    • KMS server port – the port used to connect to the licensing server
