Every config change template includes two parts: parameters and commands.


Parameters tell a user about the template's purpose through its descriptions. Parameters prompt the user for the values, such as the specific node(s) on which to make the templates specific config change.


Commands declare the input type for a variable through arguments. Commands include arguments and logical operations needed to produce a set of CLI commands and execute those commands against each NCM node targeted for a specific config change.

A template creator develops a script for a template by defining the parameters that tell a user about the template and associating a description or label with a variable in the template's user interface.
