Sharing Specified Images

Scenarios

After obtaining the project ID from a tenant, you can share specified private images with the tenant. You can share a single image or multiple images as needed.

Prerequisites

  • You have obtained the project ID from the target tenant.
  • Before sharing an image, ensure that any sensitive data has been deleted from the image.

Procedure

  • Share multiple images.
    1. Access the IMS console.

      2. Under Compute, click Image Management Service.

        The IMS console is displayed.

    2. Click the Private Images tab.
    3. Select the private images to share and click Share above the image list.
    4. In the Share Image dialog box, enter the project ID of the target tenant.

      To share images with more than one tenant, separate their project IDs with commas (,).

      • You can enter a maximum of 100 project IDs at a time.
      • You can share images only within the region where they reside. To share an image across regions, you need to replicate the image to the target region first.
