Template is a customizable set of policy configuration including commonly used objects, services and other configurations. SFM allows the administrator to define templates for storing global configurations. The configuration stored in a template can be directly applied to any managed Device(s) or Device group(s).

Template enables ease-of-administration by eliminating the need of configuring same entities on the Devices individually. Policy configuration using templates reduces administrative efforts in large enterprises and MSP networks where new Devices are added frequently.

Note All policy configuration entities for Device Group level can be added to a template, except the following entities, which are outside the scope of templates:
  • Administrator Password
  • Synchronize
