How do I choose which elastic image configuration an instance uses?

I have set up new image configurations, I have started them, I have copied images, I have customized them, and I have ssh'd into them, but the one thing I cannot seem to find is how to indicate which image configuration Bamboo should use when starting an instance.  I have no idea how it decides which one it uses, and I haven't found anything in the docs.

Bamboo uses image capabilities to find a matching image. You can prevent it from using some of the images by disabling them.

You can also dedicate an image to specific builds.

If anyone else is looking, this functionality is in the Elastic Image Configuration:


Select "capabilities" next to the image you want.

Select "dedicate image" from the row of buttons below the description.

Then, set it to whatever plan/build/job you want.


The documentation is linked in the accepted answer.
