Reserving Resources from the Inventory

It is possible to reserve a resource directly from the Inventory dashboard. This will create a sandbox containing only this resource (as well as its sub-resources if the resource is unshared by default). By default, this option is available for CloudShell admins only but can be exposed to regular users using the AllowRegularUsersToReserveFromInventory configuration key.

Note: This creates a limited sandbox that does not include orchestration, resource conflict management capabilities and cannot use abstract resources or virtual resources. Therefore, if you need such capabilities, it is recommended to reserve a regular blueprint that has the required orchestration instead.

To reserve a resource from the Inventory:

  1. In the required resource row, click More Info.

    The More Info window pops up.

  2. Click Reserve 

    The Reserve dialog box is displayed.

  3. Enter the required sandbox details and click Reserve.

    A sandbox containing this resource is created.
