Creating templates

A template is a series of actions or building blocks to be applied to the device in a particular order. A template can have one or many actions. You can change the task order in a template. The action sequence can be changed where the action makes sense, but can't be changed where it does not make sense (for example, you can't place a post-OS-specific action before the installation of the OS).

Templates that you create through the Capture Template and Deploy Template toolbar options are pre-populated with default actions the template needs to work. No additional customization is necessary and you can immediately use a template after you create it. Of course, you can still customize these templates for your environment and needs, if necessary.

Use the Empty template toolbar option if you want to start a new template with nothing preconfigured.
