You should see a list of all images available for your project. You can use the filter to see images that are public,private,shared or community

Images that are public are uploaded and configured by the FlexiHPC team.

Images that are specific to your project are either private or shared

Updating an Image


If you need to modify the image details or metadata, the general practice is to create a new image with the desired changes rather than directly editing the existing one. After creating the new image, you can delete the old image if it's no longer needed.

Find the image you would like to update and then click the down arrow at the end of the image row and select Edit Image

Within the Edit Image dialog you are able to change the following items

Image Details

Image Name


When changing this property be very careful as some ones code or CLI based deployment could be targeting this property. We normally say use Image ID’s when using any CLI or code based deployments to avoid this issue as Image ID’s are GUID’s
