BIG-IQ® Device can manage multiple devices simultaneously. These devices can be located in several data centers that may be located in many different locations. To help you easily manage required configuration changes (such as changes to DNS, default gateways, route domains, NTP, or SNMP) for a large number of devices, you can use configuration templates. You define changes once in the configuration template, then push the template out to specified devices. This can save a significant amount of time because you are not required to log in to each device individually.
|Fixed||The value you define for this option is fixed. A user cannot change this value when deploying the template.|
|Optional||The value you define for this option is the default. A user can leave this default or specify their own value when deploying the template.|
|Required||You do not define a value for this option. The user must specify a value when they deploy the template.|
