Using configuration templates saves you time on configuring devices. You can write a description when you create the template. All the templates you've created are available on Control Hub and you can apply, edit, and copy them later on.

Limitations
  • Applying a template is a one time operation. If you edit a template, the configurations on the device it's applied to will not change. You must apply it to the device again for the configurations to be updated.

  • Possible performance issues when applying a template to many devices at once and when applying templates with many configurations.

You can also edit and remove configurations from this page. If there are any errors, you get notified of them on this page. Click Create to create and save the template.

You can download the template as a CSV file.

If you're applying configurations on devices in bulk, you get an option to save the configurations as new template you can use at a later date.

After you have created templates, those are saved to Control Hub and you can apply them to devices.
