Service Templates Workflow


A designer, who is typically a network engineer or someone with an equivalent level of knowledge, uses Service Templates to apply service specific values (service variables) by creating service templates. The designer then attaches one or more templates to a service definition.

A service provisioner selects a definition to create a service order. Any templates attached to the definition can be applied and, if required, edited by the provisioner during endpoint configuration.

Deployment automatically resolves service specific values.

The roles of designer and provisioner require the appropriate user privileges (see User Privileges in Service Templates).

The service designer’s role in the service template workflow covers the following tasks:

  1. Creating a Service Template

  2. Finding Configuration Options

  3. Specifying Service-Specific Values

  4. Applying a Service Template to a Service Definition

  5. Modifying a Service Template

  6. Deleting a Service Template

  7. Exporting a Service Template

  8. Importing a Service Template

  9. Viewing Service Template Inventory

The service provisioner’s tasks in the service template workflow remain creating and deploying service orders. Creating a Service Order Based on a Service Definition with a Template covers service template handling within a service order.
