A Parameter Template is a collection of settings. They are used to quickly and reliably replicate device settings across many devices.


Templates can be made for System Parameters or Admin Parameters:

  • Admin Parameters contain connectivity settings, such as server and APN settings.
  • System Parameters contain device behavior settings, such as heartbeat period, tracking frequency, etc.


Once a template is created, it cannot be edited. If settings must be changed you must edit the settings on a device and create a new template.


When creating a parameter template, the general process is:

  1. Edit an individual device. Setup the parameters as you require them on a single device
  2. Create a parameter template based on this single device. This will create a snap shot of its settings
  3. Apply the template to multiple devices to replicate those settings to all of the devices.
