    @Pallikonda, Prathibha

    This is a preview feature which needs to be enabled by Azure. You can find more information about this preview here.

    Azure Compute Gallery – direct shared gallery is currently in PREVIEW and subject to the Preview Terms for Azure Compute Gallery.

    To publish images to a direct shared gallery during the preview, you need to register at https://aka.ms/directsharedgallery-preview. Please submit the form and share your use case, We will evaluate the request and follow up in 10 business days after submitting the form. No additional access required to consume images, Creating VMs from a direct shared gallery is open to all Azure users in the target subscription or tenant the gallery is shared with. In most scenarios RBAC/Cross-tenant sharing using service principal is sufficient, request access to this feature only if you wish to share images widely with all users in the subscription/tenant.

    Hope this helps. If you are still having issues after the feature is enabled for you please let us know.

    Thanks for your response.

    as per the docs I have submitted the form https://aka.ms/directsharedgallery-preview. , do you have any idea when this feature will get enabled (or) how can I track the status of my submission.
