Importing Task Templates
It is possible for administrators to import new templates from other ADM sources. This simplifies the process of sharing complex commands, parameters or transform combinations as the data can be easily migrated out of one Appspace instance and into another via this method.
Exporting Existing Templates
The ADM extension makes it possible for administrators to export existing tasks. This makes it easier to share specific device commands, parameters or transform combinations as a task can become very custom or complex.
From the Task Templates tab, check the box next to the Name of the template that you would like to export.
Creating New Templates
From the Advanced Device Management extension, select the Task Templates tab. Click on the Add + icon to begin adding a new Task Template.
In the Task Definition section, select the target device by clicking the + button. Assign a specific set of Parameters, Command and Transforms for this task template. If your task is designed to target multiple devices, you can individually set the task definition for each device type, again by simply adding a new value by clicking the same + button.
In the Availability section, choose the availability for this task template. If you select Global, the task can be made available globally across the entire network and if you select Specific Location, the task will be available only for specific networks or groups.
Only portal administrators are able to set tasks to global.
Editing Task Templates
You can edit any of the existing task templates to make modifications to the device command and parameters.
- Configuring task templates will take effect after an update has been set.
- Monitoring or Advanced tasks will need to be re-deployed after the task template has been modified.
From the Task Templates tab, select the Name of the template that you would like to make changes to.
