To create an instance template through the Google Cloud Platform Console, follow these steps:

  • In the GCP Console, go to the Instance Templates page.

  • Click Create instance template.

  • Fill in the fields you want for your instance template, or accept the default values. The following values are provided by default:

    • Machine type: n1-standard-1

    • Image: The latest Debian image

    • Boot disk: A new standard boot disk named after the instance

    • VPC network: The default VPC network

    • IP address: An ephemeral external IP address

  • Optionally, change the instance's Shielded VM settings, if you chose an image that supports Shielded VM.

  • Optionally, click on the tabs in the Management, Security, Disks, Networking, Sole Tenancy section to further customize your template. For example, you can add up to 15 secondary non-boot disks.

  • Optionally, click Equivalent REST at the bottom of the page to view the REST request body, which includes the JSON representation of your instance template.

  • Click Create to create the template.
