When you subscribe to a published vCloud Director catalog, metadata in the templates is preserved depending upon the credentials with which the clouds containing the published catalog and subscription catalog are registered with vCloud Connector.

If the clouds are registered with system administrator credentials, all metadata is preserved. If the clouds are registered with organization administrator credentials, only metadata entries with Read-Write permissions are preserved. See the table for a complete list.
