IPv4 network templates allow you to create standard settings that can be applied when you create new networks.

When you apply a template to a single network or to multiple networks, and change template settings, the networks based on the template are updated accordingly. Use network templates to standardize address assignments and deployment options.
Note: A conflict between a network and a template occurs when the network and template have the same deployment option server settings and you perform one of the following actions:
  • Add a deployment option to the template and the following conditions are true:
    • The option already exists in the network.
    • The values of the option added to the template are different from the values of the option in the network.
  • Add a deployment option to the network and the following conditions are true:
    • The option already exists in the template.
    • The values of the option added to the network are different from the values of the option in the template.
  • After applying a template to a network, you change deployment option settings in the network.

If the deployment option server settings of the network and template are different, a conflict does not occur.

Note: Address Manager API v4.0 and greater includes the following changes to IPv4 network templates when performing add, update, and get operations for IPv4 network templates through API:
  • The pipe (|) separator in the sub-type value has been replaced with commas (,).
  • If the name properties contains commas (,) or back-slashes (\), it needs to be escaped with backward slash (\).
