Defining application templates

– for Scout 15.7 and later versions –

As an administrator, you can create a template for each application type, for example, a browser template: In the template, you specify values that users will find filled out when they create a browser application. If you create a browser template and specify the browser type Firefox and System proxy as proxy, as a result users at all levels will see Firefox and system proxy as predefined values when they create a new browser application.

Note that the values can be overwritten. However, if you disable the object rights for the advanced options or free parameters of an application type, these values remain because the relevant users do not have access to them in the application definition.

Application templates are defined at the top level. You can define exactly one template for each application type.
