I have never done this, so unfortunately that would require some development and experimentation. I would create a YAML file as suggested by the referenced documentation and manually launch an instance with it. When it works, it's easy to transfer that to a template.

Hi Bernd,It will be very helpful for me if you share your YAML file which you prepared by referring suggested document. Once you share,i will try to manually launch an instance in my lab.
