BIG-IQ® 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 to DNS, NTP, SMTP, and Syslog for a large number of devices, you can use configuration templates.
To start, you create a configuration template, then deploy that template to certain devices. This can save a significant amount of time because you are not required to log in to each device individually to make configuration changes.
|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. Users can leave this default or specify their own value when deploying the template.|
|Required||You do not define a value for this option. The users must specify a value when they deploy the template.|
