A template contains a set of predefined properties that you use to create IPv4 and IPv6 DHCP objects. It is metadata that you can modify and reuse. Using a template enables you to create objects in a quick and consistent way. You can define the object properties once in a template, and then create multiple objects that inherit their properties from the template. For example, you can create a network template that has a fixed netmask of /24 and extensible attribute "State" set to California. You can then use the template to create networks in California that contain /24 netmasks.
You can also modify and delete a template. Note that modifying or deleting a template does not affect existing objects created based on the template. You must be a superuser or have read/write permissions to add, modify, or delete a template. A superuser can set other admin group privileges on templates. For information, see . You can also define extensible attributes for these templates when you create them. For information, see Using Extensible Attributes.
