Connection Templates

The template file for a Spotlight application contains the information that controls the standard appearance and behavior of Spotlight connections for that connection type. Spotlight is shipped with a set of templates that are suitable for most connections.

Once a Spotlight connection has been configured and calibrated, you can save its configuration as a template for use with Spotlight connections to similar systems. Changes that are made to a template propagate to all connections that use that template, unless individual changes have already been made to those connections.

The information contained in the template includes:

  • The configuration of controls in the home page and drilldowns, including the metrics displayed and the data sources from which they are derived.
  • Calibration values for those controls.
  • The threshold values for alarms on those controls.

To save the configuration for the current Spotlight connection as a template

  1. Select the Spotlight connection in the Spotlight Browser in Live connections
  2. Select File | Save as Template.
  3. Select Save calibration to save calibration data in the template.


  • You can change the template assigned to an existing Spotlight connection. Connection Properties - General Page
