Can I clone/duplicate an existing configuration template?
Yes, it is possible to clone/duplicate a template to create a new one. Being able to duplicate existing ones would potentially save a lot of setup time.
A user is monitoring around 10 servers and has a configuration template named Windows Template with the following configuration profiles:
Notification Profile - Default Notification
Resource Check Profile - My Profile
Threshold Profile - Server Thresholds
User Groups - Admin
Services - MySQL, Apache, Tomcat, Kaspersky, Java
Now, the user is planning to add 8 more servers for monitoring.
The user wishes to retain the same notification, resource check and threshold profiles, but wants to change the user group to "Application Team", add services including Netlogon, MailService, DNS, assetexplorer and remove the MySQL service from monitoring. To start from the scratch of setting up a configuration template would be time consuming.
Please follow the below steps:
Go to Admin > Server Monitor > Configuration Template
Select the Configuration Template "Windows Template"
Click on the option "Clone this Template"
Provide a new Display Name - "New Template"
Add the services "Netlogon, MailService, DNS, assetexplorer" manually
Hover on MySQL service and use the "x" icon to remove it from monitoring
Choose "Application Team" as the User Group
Save your changes
Now, a duplicated copy of "Windows Template" is created with few edits (New Template).
