Undeploy a Configuration Template from a Device
As a tenant administrator, you can undeploy a configuration template when you no longer need the configuration deployed on the device.

To remove only the references to the configuration template without removing the configuration pushed to the device, you must dissociate the configuration template. See Dissociate a Configuration Template from a Device for details.
