How to: Import and export of individual Marketplace applications

Do you want to share a Marketplace app only to a dedicated account and not globally? That’s possible! With the import function in our Marketplace.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create a Marketplace app and then import it into another project.

If this is your first time in our Marketplace, be sure to check out this tutorial: How to Marketplace.(German only).

Step-by-step guide

1. Create a server with attached storage at gridscale

2. Navigate to Object Storage and create a bucket

3. Give the bucket a name and choose a location

Are you ready to start?

Or do you still have questions? Create your free account now, or get a personal consultation.

4. Navigate back to the server and create a snapshot

5. Export the snapshot to your bucket

6. In the detailed view of your bucket, you will see the exported snapshot.

This may take a few minutes.

7. Navigate to the Marketplace

8. Create a Marketplace application

Name your app, assign it to a category and select the bucket with the snapshot you created earlier.

9. Go to self created applications

Now that we have created a Marketplace app, we want to assign it to a dedicated account. For this we use the import function via hash.

10. Click on your created application

Further up you will see the hash value of your application. Click on it and it will be saved to the clipboard.

11. Switch to another project and import your application in the Marketplace

12. Launch your Marketplace app and connect to it

Did everything work? Great! Then you have successfully created a Marketplace application and imported it into another project.
