Publishing Configuration Templates
After you have designed a configuration template, you need to publish it. Only published configuration templates are available to the Resource Designer for creating virtualized network function (VNF) packages.
Use one of the following methods to design a configuration template:
Using a data model. Choose this method when you already have a data model for your configuration template. See Designing Templates with a YANG Configuration.
Using your working configuration. Choose this method when you have a Jinja template but want the Configuration Designer to generate a data model for your configuration template. See Designing Templates with a Configuration.
To publish a configuration template:
- Select Home> Designs.
The Configuration Template Designs page appears. All the configuration templates are displayed in a table.
- Select the configuration template (with the status as Validated) that you want to publish to the Resource Designer.
- Select Publish from the Edit drop-down list.
Your configuration template is published and available to be used by the Resource Designer. Its status changes from Validated to Published.
