Sharing a disk image enables others to view and create copies of the Disk Image, which can then be edited to suit the needs of other organizations. If you make changes to the shared disk image in your library, they are automatically reflected in the version that is visible to other users. (If users make changes to their own copies of the item, these changes do not affect the disk image in your library in any way.)
You can share disk images with users in other organizations.
Note: Sharing permissions must be defined in the user's assigned permissions group. If you are not authorized to share disk images, contact your system administrator.
Note: To allow a user from your own organization to view and use a library item, they must be assigned to permissions groups where the viewing of shared items is enabled. Contact your Ravello administrator for additional details.
Important: Make sure that the disk image does not contain any confidential or proprietary information before sharing it.
To share a disk image with a specific user:
1 In the Library > Disk Images page, select the Disk Image you want to share, then do one of the following:
- Click Share > Manage sharing, and click Another Organization in the Manage Disk Image Sharing dialog box.
- Click Share > Share with Others.
2 (Optional) Click Review/edit disk image documentation to update the description of the disk image
that will be visible to others.
3 In the Share with Users field, enter the email address of the user with whom you want to share your disk image.
4 If you have not already done so, read the Terms of Service and Additional Terms of Service, then select I accept.
5 Click Share.
