Cloud user actions

Cloud users request and manage VMs.

Note: Some changes to specifications and some state changes might require a change request.
Users with the cloud_user and cloud_admin roles can perform these actions only on virtual machines assigned to them.
  • Request new virtual machines from the service catalog for the virtualization products that your instance supports (for example, VMware or Azure).
  • Modify VM (Azure and VMware only): Request modifications to their virtual machines, such as increased data disk size and memory or a state change such as start or stop.
  • Update the end of the lease
  • Pause VM
  • Stop / Start VM
  • Cancel VM
  • Terminate VM
  • Take a snapshot and schedule snapshots
  • Restore from snapshot
  • Delete a snapshot
