GET /templates/:template_id

Returns single template


Response Parameters

allowed_resize_without_reboot – true if resize without reboot is allowed, otherwise false

allowed_hot_migrate – true if hot migration is allowed, otherwise false

allowed_swap – true if swap is allowed, otherwise false

backup_server_id – the ID of the backup server where the template is stored

baremetal_server - true if the baremetal server can be built from this template

cdn – true if this template can be used for building edge servers. Otherwise false.

checksum – file checksum

created_at – the date in the [YYYY][MM][DD]T[hh][mm][ss]Z format

disk_target_device – the prefix indicating the method of translating the disk to a VS by hypervisor

ext4 - true if ext4 file system is supported

file_name – the name of the template file

id – ID of template

initial_password - the password set for the VS built on this template

initial_username - the username set for the VS built on this template

label – the template title

manager_id - ID of the template on the template server

min_disk_size – minimum disk size required to build a VS on this template (GB) 

min_memory_size – minimum memory size required to build a VS on this template (MB)

operating_system – operating system name

operating_system_arch – architecture of the operating system

operating_system_distro – operating system distribution

operating_system_edition – edition of the OS

operating_system_tail – tail of the OS

parent_template_id – true if this is a system template

remote_id - ID of the template, if it came from the market

resize_without_reboot_policy - all specifically tested templates (all newly added templates and some of the most frequently used ones) will have this parameter which indicates the hot resize possibility for a particular template considering its OS version and virtualization type:

	"xen": {
	"centos5": 15,
	"centos6": 15
	"kvm": {
	"centos5": 12,
	"centos6": 12


The indicated integer is a decimal representation of a 4-bit binary code, which indicates whether CPU or RAM can (1) or cannot (0) be resized without reboot, where: 

    • 1st bit defines the ability to increase cpu
    • 2nd bit defines the ability to decrease cpu
    • 3rd bit defines the ability to increase RAM
    • 4th bit defines the ability to decrease RAM

smart_server - true if a smart server can be built from this template

state – state of the template (active, inactive)

template_size-  the size of the template

updated_at — the date when the Network was updated in the [YYYY][MM][DD]T[hh][mm][ss]Z format

user_id - the ID of a user who owns this template

version – version of the file

virtualization – type of virtualization (xen, kvm or kvm_virtio) which is compatible with this template
