Add or manage an application configuration template


This topic explains how a PDS administrator can add, edit, or remove an application configuration template for users.

Prerequisites

  • PDS account Admin privileges

Procedure

You can add an application configuration template with all parameters or an empty template.

Add a template with all parameters:

  1. Select SettingsData Services tab.

  2. In the Data Services page, select the data service you want to configure.

  3. In the specific data service page → Application Configuration Templates section → select + Add.

  4. In the Add Application Configuration template dialog box, specify:

    • Name: enter the template name.

      Note
      The template name must be unique.
    • Add: displays the key and value text boxes to enter both the configuration parameters.

    • Add Deploy-time Parameter: displays only the key text box to enter the configuration parameter.

  5. Select Add.

Add an empty template

PDS allows you to add an empty application configuration template, without specifying all configuration parameters:

add empty application configuration template

For example, in the following image, you can select the empty template in the Deploy dialog box → dropdown in the Apllication Configuration section, and start deploying the Redis data service:
