2 Templates


In the Configuration → Templates section users can configure and maintain templates.

A listing of existing templates with their details is displayed.

From the dropdown to the right in the title bar you can choose whether to display all templates or only those belonging to a group. You can also search and filter templates by name.

Displayed data:

Column Description
Templates Name of the template. Clicking on the template name opens the template configuration form.
Entities (Applications, Items, Triggers, Graphs, Screens, Discovery, Web) Number of the respective entities in the template (displayed in grey). Clicking on the entity name will, in the whole listing of that entity, filter out those that belong to the template.
Linked templates Templates that are linked to the template, in a nested setup where the template will inherit all entities of the linked templates.
Linked to The hosts and templates that the template is linked to.

To configure a new template, click on the Create template button in the top right-hand corner. To import a template from an XML file, click on the Import button in the top right-hand corner.

Mass editing options

Buttons below the list offer some mass-editing options:

  • Export - export the template to an XML file
  • Delete - delete the template while leaving its linked entities (items, triggers etc.) with the hosts
  • Delete and clear - delete the template and its linked entities from the hosts

To use these options, mark the checkboxes before the respective templates, then click on the required button.
