Manage Your Template and Template Stack Configuration on
Best practices for managing the network configuration
of your managed firewalls using templates and template stacks from
the Panorama™ management server.
Use Templates and template stacks to
reuse your network and firewall configuration objects across your
managed firewalls for common settings such as logging and high availability
(HA) while still allowing you to configure modular templates that
can be combined as needed for multiple managed firewalls in different
by creating templates with
logical groupings of settings even if the configuration is incomplete.
Remember, the configuration must be complete and all references
resolved at the template stack level—not
at every template. You can reuse, reference, and override objects
from different templates to complete the template stack configuration.
Create model-specific templates (for example, network interface
configuration) and use case specific templates (for example, admins,
role-based access control sets). This enables you to mix and match
the right templates when you add them to a template stack.
Configure the template stack with network
configurations you want to override in a template
or locally on the managed firewall.
