Edit AMI on Template Designer

We’ve implemented the ability to change the existing AMI on the Template Designer page. This allows you to keep you existing relationships with other objects (like security groups) but modify the AMI in use.

Click on your AMI on the template and use the Change link under the AMI, you will then be able to Select other available SoE options from the drop down.

Template Designer- Provision – Automatically start environment when provisioning

Previously, when provisioning environments would go to a pending state, we’ve added an option on the Provisioning screen to allow it to be started automatically. We’ve made then selected by default.


Show related Schedules & Backup policies from the environment

From the individual environment page you are now able to view / modify the related scheduled environments.
