Creating Component Templates

Component templates enable you to save and reuse component processes and properties and create new components from them; template-based components inherit the template properties and processes.

To create a template:

  1. Navigate to Management > Components.
  2. Click the Component Template Actions button and then select Create Template.
  3. Enter the template's name in the Name field.
  4. Enter a description in the Description field.

    The optional description can be used to convey additional information about the template.

  5. Select the source location of your artifacts in Source Config Type, and then complete the additional fields specific to that source configuration type. See Source Configuration Type Fields.
  6. To continue creating component templates and stay in the list, click Save. To start configuring the component template you just created, click Build Out.

You create a process for the template in the same way processes are created for components. For information about creating component processes, see Component Processes.
