Cisco IoT OD provides a pre-defined set of default configuration templates for your network devices. You can also use the eCVD (Cisco Validated Design) templates for more advanced options. The templates can be selected when creating or updating a device group, where you can enter settings that apply to all devices in the group. See Create Configuration Group.
This document describes how to optionally create custom template configurations if required by your organization. You can edit an existing template or create a new template. Create custom templates before devices are onboarded. Apply the templates to device groups later.
Use the Apache FreeMarker™ Template Language (FTL) to create templates. Apply them to the Cisco IOS router and access point configurations.
The eCVD (Cisco Validated Design) templates provide a form based user interface that enables you to get your IoT OD deployments up and running. You can also modify the eCVD templates to create more customized templates. Send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org to enable eCVD templates.
Note: Changes to an existing template do not automatically propagate to device groups. To push template changes to devices, click Groups > group name > Push Config.
