Request and maintain VMs

Requested VMs are subject to normal approvals and some special provisioning tasks. For some providers, you can create a service catalog request to start, stop, terminate, and extend the lease on a VM.

Before you begin

Role required: cloud_user, cloud_operator, or cloud_admin

About this task

You can access and manage any of your resources from the My Virtual Assets portal. For example, you can start or stop a VM, request the termination of a resource, or update the date that a lease should end.

Any VM created from a ServiceNow instance can be destroyed from that instance. This functionality requires the Orchestration plugin for the provider.

Note: The topics in this section describe VMs, which are based on AWS, Azure, or VMware images. AWS stacks and Azure Resource groups, in contrast, are collections of related cloud resources.
