Import Configuration Templates
In Customer Portal, users with the Tenant Administrator role can import a configuration template by specifying the parameters using a configuration template file (Jinja template language), Yang model file (schema for the configuration), and the Viewdef file (configuration of the UI).
In CSO releases before Release 5.1.0, configuration templates are called stage-2 configuration templates.
To import a configuration template:
- Select Resources > Templates > Configuration Templates.
The Configuration Templates page appears.
- Select More > Import.
The Import Configuration Template page appears.
- Complete the configuration according to the guidelines
provided in Table 1.
Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.
- Click OK.
You are returned to the Configuration Templates page and a popup appears displaying the status of the import operation.
- Click OK to close the popup.
You are returned to the Configuration Templates page.
If the configuration template is imported successfully, you can validate the configuration template by using the Preview workflow and then assign the configuration template to a device template or deploy it on a device.
