Many MSPs or SI would like to be able to “group configure port settings” in the Network. The Switch Template feature helps users to apply the same port configuration to all switches with the same models in the Network to save the time of configuration one by one.

you can access this screen by Configure > Switch Settings > Template

You can create any template by model type and then click on “Edit” on the template to configure detail; the setting is similar to switch detail page settings.

  • Apply to All will apply the Switch Template to all devices of the same model in the Network.


  • The uplink port will not be overridden by the template to prevent losing connection.

  • The Uplink port couldn't be the Mirror destination port

  • PoE on the ports should be enabled when the ports are configured with the PoE schedule on the devices.


For Hospitality or other network environments, the network administrator will purchase the same model of the switch and define the same port function, say port 1 for TV for VLAN1, port 2 for IP phone for VLAN 10, and other ports for VLAN 11-50.., with the switch template created and import the VLAN settings, it will apply to all switches of the same model, which ease the job of switch configuration one by one

VLAN export

This will export the current VLAN JSON file and allows you to edit locally.

VLAN import

You can click the example hyperlink to download the JSON file

and then adjust the VLAN settings locally

then click JSON file upload to import your custom JSON file.

So you can import VLAN settings at a time instead use the current Web GUI to edit one by one

Apply the template individually in Switch lists

You can apply the switch template to the same model of the switches from

Manage > Switch List > choose the Switches to be applied > Choose Apply Template
