IPv4 templates allow you to create standard settings that can be applied to the following IPv4 objects:
  • IPv4 Networks
  • DHCPv4 Reserved Addresses
  • DHCPv4 Ranges
  • IPv4 Blocks
When you apply a template to a single object or to multiple objects, and change template settings, the objects based on the template are updated accordingly. Use IPv4 templates to standardize address assignments and deployment options.
Note: A conflict between an object and a template occurs when the object 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 object.
    • The values of the option added to the template are different from the values of the option in the object.
  • Add a deployment option to the object and the following conditions are true:
    • The option already exists in the object.
    • The values of the option added to the object are different from the values of the option in the template.
  • After applying a template to an object, you change deployment option settings in the object.

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

Note: Address Manager API v4.0 and greater includes the following changes to IPv4 templates when performing add, update, and get operations for IPv4 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 (\).
