Applying Service Templates

Service templates are groupings of preconfigured services. You can standardize monitoring by applying service templates to devices. During service template creation, they are assigned a device class. In order to apply a service template to a device, the service template and the device must have the same device class.

This procedure can only be done at the Customer or Site-level.

  1. In the navigation pane, click Views > All Devices.
  2. Select the check box next to a device.

    You can select the check box next to the Name field to select all of the devices.

  3. Select Apply Service Templates from the drop-down list.

    The Apply Service Templates to Devices screen appears. If the devices selected belong to more than one device class, there will be a section for each device class.

  4. If required, click Expand to display service templates that correspond to the device class.

    The Service Templates selection list displays.

  5. Select the service templates as required.
  6. Click > to move them one at a time or click >> to select and move all the service templates.
  7. Repeat step 4 to step 6 for each device class.
  8. Click Apply.

    The Service Template Application Report screen appears with serve templates that match the device class of the selected device.

  9. Expand the tree to view any messages.
  10. Click OK.
  11. The service templates are applied to the devices and the Devices screen appears.

    You can click Save to apply the settings and remain on the current screen.
