    For more information on task template, please see "Task Template" in Glossary. You can create a task template in the BatchCompute Console in the following steps:

    1. Log in to the BatchCompute Console. If you haven't activated the BatchCompute service, activate it as prompted on the BatchCompute Console page.

      Main parameters include:
      • Compute Environment Type:
        • Existing Compute Environment: you can select an existing compute environment.
        • Automatic Compute Environment: you don't need to pre-create a fixed compute environment. After a job is submitted, a CVM instance will be created automatically to run the task and terminated automatically after task completion.
      • Resource Configuration: you can click Detailed CVM Configuration for further customization. For more information, please see CVM Product Documentation.
      • Number of Resources: this determines the number of resources for concurrent task execution. For more information, please see "Task Instance" in Glossary.
