Install VM from USB device

I have installed VMs either from ISO images -uploaded to Proxmox- and from physical DVD drive.
I'd like to install a VM now from USB device, for when I have one made with Windows media creation tool or dd-ed a Linux distro.

But I'm a bit clueless. Is it just enough to pass the USB device to VM?
