The possible statuses for a template audit are:
INSYNC— The configurations in the template and on the device are the same.
OUTOFSYNC— The configuration in the template is different from that on the device.
NOTAVAIL— The configuration in the template is not available on the device. This status is displayed when no audit is performed on a device for a particular template.
You can view these statuses in the Summary column on the Job Management page.
