5.1 About Context Templates

Context templates are created so that contexts can be derived from them. Only domain administrators can create context templates, although both domain administrators and domain managers can create contexts based on them.

Two context templates are supplied at installation: "Export", and "Standard". These can be copied to create new context templates, and then modified as required.

A context template provides the features and functionality of the contexts that are derived from it. When changes are made to a context template, the changes are applied to the contexts that were created from the template.

Context templates have a set of roles assigned to them. The roles are used in contexts to create rights for users and groups.


It is strongly recommended that you do not delete context templates, and that you do not modify context templates other than to add new roles to them. It is also strongly recommended that you do not remove roles from context templates. If a context template becomes unsuitable, it is best to deactivate it and to create a new one to use in its place.

You cannot delete a context template if any contexts derived from it are in use.

You cannot remove a role from a context template if the role is currently assigned to a user within a context created from that context template.
