Add Template

Use the Add Template API to add an existing OS template to your server. These templates can be Windows templates or any other custom OS templates which can be used for the creation of Virtual Private Servers. You can also download the OS image by passing the "url" parameter. The API response will contain "done" as "1" after successful addition of the template.

For more information, you can refer this Add OS Template guide.
