Azure has a very large number of templates and template publishers, which means it may take a considerable amount of time to perform template operations, such as listing templates or taking snapshots. To improve performance, when importing templates from Microsoft Azure, Abiquo administrators can now filter by publishers. The system administrator can load the predefined publishers using Abiquo configuration properties.
When the user clicks on Import template, the dialog displays the publishers.
For details of the configuration, see Microsoft Azure ARM Integration
