Image Creation Process

The image is the last step in the Image Management creation process that typically starts from the ground upwards. The process is as follows:

  1. Add resources (e.g. PowerShell scripts, installation and configuration files)
  2. Assign these resources to provisioners
  3. Create groups from provisioners (e.g. Baseline configuration)
  4. Create roles out of multiple groups (e.g. Citrix Server VDA or Web Server)
  5. Create an operating system configuration item (e.g. Windows Server 2019 x64 in English)
  6. Define a builder (e.g. build the image on AWS in eu-central-1 on a m5.xlarge instance)
  7. Put everything together to create an image template that can be used in a next step to provision your infrastructure.

Start the process with our Image Wizard.
