If the requirements for resources or other aspects of your environment change, you can modify existing resource templates. Databases that you create from the new template use the new settings.

Log in to Data Director as an organization administrator or as an administrator with privileges to manage resource templates.

1

In your organization, click the Organization Settings tab.

2

Click Resource Templates in the left pane.

3

Right-click the template that you want to modify, and perform one of the supported actions.

Description

Clone

Creates a copy of this template. When you clone a template, the Create Database Resource Template wizard opens, and you can configure the resource settings for the clone.

Delete

Deletes the selected template.

Unpublish

Disables provisioning and other capabilities for this template. When a template is not published, you can view or manage, but cannot be used for provisioning or other purposes.

Edit Permissions

Allows you to specify who can use this template, and what each user can do. You can change the permissions for an existing user, remove an existing user, and add a role. Users who can create a database from the template do not automatically have permissions to modify the template.

Properties

Allows you to modify the settings that you specified when you created the template. See Create a Resource Template for a discussion of the properties you can change.

You can create databases with the new settings from the modified template. Databases that you previously created from the template do not change.
