Configuration Templates

You can use configuration templates to save and reuse configuration data in processes. Typically, the data is for server configurations, for example on Tomcat servers, but the data can be for any purpose.

Preparing to Use Configuration Templates

Before you can use configuration templates, you must do the following preparation steps.

To prepare for using configuration templates:

  1. Load the DAConfigManagement plugin.
  2. Create a configuration template for your component.
  3. In a component process, use the Resource Tools > Configuration Management > Install Template step to download the template from the Deployment Automation server and do token replacement based on environment or other properties.
Note: Configuration templates are not the same as component templates. For information on component templates, see Creating Component Templates.
