New canister in EU subnet via NNS

I would like to create a new canister into the new EU subnet. To manage that canister, i would like to use my NNS account with the my canister tab.

I know that the a new canister is only possible in the EU subnet if the corresponding cycles canister is also installed into the EU subnet.

My question is, Is there a way to create a new canister - running in EU subnet - but managed under NNS „my canister“ tab ??

Hey, you can achieve this by doing the following:

  1. Deploy to the EU subnet using dfx
  2. Add your NNS dapp principal as a controller:
    dfx canister update-settings <canister id> --network ic --add-controller <principal>
  3. Link the this canister in the NNS dapp under the “My Canisters” tab using the canister id.

I hope this helps.

Hey @chepreghy thanks a lot I will try it.

@chepreghy very cool.

I can verify its functionality.

I’ve successfully created a new canister for a homepage project on the EU Subnet and added it to my NNS user.
