Modifying a Template Definition

You modify a template definition when you want to propagate the configuration changes to the device template. You cannot change the device family, OS version, and schema version when modifying the original template definition. When you modify a template definition, you cannot change any existing configuration pages. You can only add new configuration pages.


You cannot modify a template definition if the template definition is published. You should first unpublish the template definition before modifying it. If you try to modify a template definition without unpublishing, an error message will be displayed.

To modify a template definition:

  1. On the Junos Space Network Management Platform user interface, select Device Templates > Definitions.

    The Definitions page is displayed.

  2. Select the template definition you want to modify and click the Modify Template Definition icon on the Actions bar.
  3. Modify the parameters you want to modify.
  4. Click Finish.

    After you modify the template definition, republish the associated device templates.
