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.|
|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.|
|Tags||Tags of the template, with macros unresolved.|
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.
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.
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 above the list of templates. 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).
