Cloning a Template Definition

You clone a template definition to quickly create a new template definition with a new name but same properties.

To modify a template definition without disabling templates based upon that definition, first clone the definition, then modify the clone.

Unlike the Modify function, the Clone function does not require that a definition be unpublished.

When you clone a template definition, you cannot change the device family or any existing pages.

To add additional pages, modify the clone (see Modifying a Template Definition).

To clone 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 clone and select Clone Template Definition from the Actions menu.

    The Clone Template Definition pop-up window is displayed.

  3. (Optional) In the Please specify a new name for the clone field, enter a user-defined template definition name.

    If you do not enter a new name for the template definition, Junos Space Network Management Platform creates the new template definition by appending “clone of” to the original template definition name.

  4. (Optional) In the Description field, enter a user-defined description.
  5. Click Clone.
