Create Config Template (Freeform Blueprint)

Creating config templates in the blueprint catalog (instead of the design catalog), gives you access to device context for systems that you've already added to your blueprint. Device context groups relevant information into one place, making it easier to get the information you need while creating config templates.
  1. From the blueprint, navigate to Staged > Catalog > Config Templates and click Create Config Template.
  2. In the dialog, enter a name for the config template including the .jinja extension. (The .jinja extension is required even if you're not using Jinja.)
  3. Enter or paste your content into the Template Text field. You can also import a config template that you created in the design (global) catalog.
    • To see device context, click Device Context.

    • To see device context for a specific system, select it from the System drop-down list.

    • Preview and Preview Mode are available only when you're editing a config template. (Preview Mode was called Apply Mode before Apstra version 4.1.2.)

  4. Click Create to create the config template and return to the config template catalog view.
When you're ready you can assign config templates to internal systems.
