Hi @sanjana, cloud images look for SSH keys through the metadata service. So you need to create a key pair (can do this through horizon) and then use it to login into the VM through SSH (ssh -i xxx.pem ubuntu@...) ...if you create more than one key, when you launch the instance, you can select between them for the specific instance. You can't access through console through this method, and as far as I know there are no default credentials defined or published for ubuntu cloud images.

Please add more details for the problems you have when creating the key through horizon.
