A Data Management for VMware Tanzu template is a software blueprint for deploying a specific version of a specific data service. You view and manage templates from the Templates view.
The Templates view includes information about the type, version, and number of deployed Service Instances:
You can use the buttons on the upper-left side of the Templates view to filter the templates by those available, published, unpublished, or retired. The CLEAR FILTERS button on the upper-right side of the view clears any filters that you may have applied to the view.
Actions that you can perform on a template include:
|Publish||Make the template available for users. New Service Instances can be provisioned from the template.|
|Unpublish||Revoke the template from use. Service Instances deployed using the template will continue to receive updates. New instances cannot be provisioned from the template.|
|Retire||Permanently remove the template. Service Instances deployed using the template will not receive updates. New instances cannot be provisioned from the template.|
