The options under Configuration > Templates focus on setting up a variety of templates that you can apply to various aspects of Orchestrator and applying template groups.
Use templates to manage and assign common configuration parameters to appliances.
CAUTION: After saving, templates are applied automatically and replace all settings on an appliance with those configured in the template. Some templates support a MERGE option. Refer to the Help for more information.
Each template that appears under Active Templates includes a timestamp that indicates the amount of time that has passed since it was last edited, and the most recently edited templates appear at the top of each template section in the list.
You can edit only a template that appears under Active Templates.
Click Show All > to view available templates that are not part of the selected template group.
To add a template to Active Templates, double-click it or drag it from Available Templates.
To copy and save the current Active Templates as a new template group, click Save As.
Click a template under Active Templates to modify it.
The template has a timestamp that indicates when it was last modified, the user who made the changes, and any comment (optional) that was entered by the user who made the changes. The timestamp appears in the format “DD-MMM-YY HH:MM by [user] - [optional comment text]” and the time is expressed in a 24-hour format.
To save the changes you made, click Save. The Save Template Changes dialog box opens.
Enter a comment (optional) in the Audit Log Comment field, and then click Save Template Changes. Any text entered in the Audit Log Comment field appears on the template timestamp and the Audit Logs tab.
NOTE: If the text of a timestamp comment is truncated, hover your cursor over the timestamp to display the full text of the comment.
A Template Group contains one or more templates you can assign to some or all of the appliances in your network.
A timestamp for the selected template group appears below the template group drop-down list and it indicates when one of the templates in the template group was last modified. The timestamp appears in the format “DD-MMM-YY HH:MM” and the time is expressed in a 24-hour format.
To create a template group, click +Add below the template group drop-down list.
- To save changes you made to the new template group, click Save. The Save Template Changes dialog box opens. Enter a comment (optional) in the Audit Log Comment field, and then click Save Template Changes. Any text entered in the Audit Log Comment field appears on the template timestamp and the Audit Logs tab.
To delete the selected template group, click -Delete below the template group drop-down list.
When you apply a template group to an appliance, Orchestrator automatically keeps the templates in the group in sync with the appliance.
To apply template groups, click Apply Template Groups at the bottom of the page. This will bring you to the Apply Templates tab where you can permanently associate appliances with specific template groups.
When returning to the Templates page, Orchestrator displays the last template group viewed.
