In the Configuration → Templates section users can configure and maintain templates.
A listing of existing templates with their details is displayed.
|Templates||Name of the template. Clicking on the template name opens the template configuration form.|
|Hosts||Number of editable hosts to which the template is linked; read-only hosts are not included.
Hosts column is available since Zabbix 5.0.3.
|Entities (Applications, Items, Triggers, Graphs, Screens, Discovery, Web)||Number of the respective entities in the template (displayed in gray). 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 templates||The templates that the template is linked to (“children” templates that inherit all entities from this template).
Since Zabbix 5.0.3, this column no longer includes hosts.
|Tags||Tags of the template, with macros unresolved.|
To view all hosts, connected to a template, click on the Hosts hyperlink.
This will open host configuration section filtered out by the template name (thus, only those hosts to which the template is linked to will be displayed):
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.
As the list may contain very many templates, it may be needed to filter out the ones you really need.
The Filter link is available below Create template and Import buttons. If you click on it, a filter becomes available where you can filter templates by host group, directly linked templates and name.
Filtering is possible only by template-level tags (not inherited ones).
Buttons below the list offer some mass-editing options:
To use these options, mark the checkboxes before the respective templates, then click on the required button.
