Apply Template Groups

Configuration > Templates & Policies > Apply Template Groups

Use this tab to add or remove templates from appliances.


  • Drag templates up or down to reorder the list. Orchestrator automatically applies any changes to templates to their associated appliances.

NOTE: If multiple template groups are applied to an appliance, the order in which they are applied determines which template is used. Templates applied later (lower on the apply order list) overwrite any conflicting templates applied earlier.

  • Template groups can be changed with either Remove or Merge.

  • “Remove” stops the removed template from further affecting the appliance, but does not immediately change any settings on the appliance. The settings remain the same unless a newly applied template overrides them.

  • “Merge” overrides all overlapping settings of the original template with those of the merged template, but leaves settings that don’t overlap as they were.

NOTE: “Remove” is recommended over “Merge” to ensure that appliance settings remain uniform across all appliances receiving the template changes.

  • The following table is an example of “Merge” behavior. The newly applied template’s settings override all old settings (aclMap 1, 2 and 4) but where the new template does not have specific settings, the previous settings remain (aclMap3).
