Configure an FTD Template

Prerequisites

Before you create a Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) template, onboard to CDO the FTD from which you will create the template. You can only create an FTD template from an onboarded FTD device.   

We strongly recommend using templates to configure brand new FTD devices being added to your environment. 

Note: When you create a template from an FTD device, the RA VPN objects are not included in the template. 

Create an FTD Template

The template you create from an FTD device will contain every aspect of that device's configuration; it's management IP address, interface configurations, policy information, and so on. Use this procedure to create an FTD template:

  1. In the CDO navigation bar, click Devices & Services.
  2. Use the filter or search field to find the FTD from which you want to create the template. 
  3. In the Device Actions pane on the right, click Create Template
  4. Enter a name for your template. Click Create Template
  5. Parameterize the template. By clicking the parameterize.PNG button, you can customize the following:
  • Logical Name
  • State
  • IP Address/Netmask

Note: These attributes only support one value per parameter. 

  1. Click Continue.
  2. Review the template and any parameterizations. Click Continue to create the template. Alternatively, click the back button to exit out of the template wizard. 
  3. The Devices & Services page now displays the FTD template you just created. 

Edit an FTD Template

Edit the template parameters with the following procedure:

  1. In the CDO navigation bar, click Devices & Services.
  2. Use the Model/Template filter to find the template you want to modify.
  3. In the Device Actions pane on the right, click Edit Parameters
  4. (Optional) make any changes to the parameters by directly editing the text box.
  5. Click Save

You can edit the rest of the FTD template just as you would the configuration of a live FTD device. You can edit you FTD template with the following configurations:

 

Delete an FTD Template

You delete a FTD just as you would remove an FTD device from CDO:

  1. In the CDO navigation bar, click Devices & Services.
  2. Use the Devices & Services filter and search field to find the FTD template you want to delete.
  3. In the Device Actions pane, click Remove trash.png.
  4. Read the warning message and click OK to delete the template.
