Create an SD-WAN Network Template

Create an SD-WAN template to contain all the networking configuration for your SD-WAN devices.
Create a template containing all the networking configuration objects for your SD-WAN hubs and branches. You must create a separate template and template stack for your hub firewalls and a separate template and template stack for your branch firewalls. It is a best practice to limit the number of templates and template stacks used to manage your SD-WAN device configuration. Limiting the number of templates and template stacks used across all hubs and branches greatly reduces the operational overhead of managing the configurations of multiple SD-WAN hubs and branches. Use template or template stack variables to help reduce the number of templates used.
