How to choose a user key-pair and an availability zone for a compute

Further click on a matched compute will show the following options:

  • key_pair: The key_pair drop box shows a list of key pairs of the current authenticated user. If no key pairs are shown, go to the OTC console and create one. Then click on the compute again to refresh the key pair list.
  • availability_zone: Choose an availability zones for the compute node (e.g., eu-de-01).
  • auto_delete: Choose this option if users do not want to keep the compute after the deployment. This option is useful if users use the compute node to run some init tasks but do not want to keep it after the deployment completes.
