Templates provide an untitled copy of the original, giving you a quick and easy way to create pre-configured documents, while ensuring that your original file remains unchanged.
You can also use templates to control the types of sessions that users can create. For example, you can create templates that have pre-configured SSL/TLS settings. These templates appear in thedialog box, under .
After you configure a session document, you can share and reuse your settings by saving the document as a template.
To create a session template
Open the session document that you've configured.
The steps depend on your user interface mode.
On themenu or the Reflection button (if using the Office 2007 Look and Feel), choose and then
From themenu, select .
Name the template file with an .rsft extension.
To lock down settings you have configured in the template, see Control Access to “Lock Down” Settings and Controls.
To make changes to the template, you must replace the template file — save the file that contains your changes using the same filename and extension as the template.
NOTE:To deploy templates, install the .rsft files to the templates folder:
[AppDataFolder] The full path of the Roaming folder for the current user. The default is C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\. \Micro Focus\Reflection\Desktop\v17.0 \templates\
Templates saved to this location appear in thedialog box, under .
You can use templates to control the types of sessions users can create. First you’ll need to create custom templates and lock down their settings as shown in Create a Session Template.
Then you’ll need to configure the workspace to hide the built-in templates that are distributed with Reflection, as shown below.
When you open Reflection after creating a custom template, the built-in templates are displayed along with your custom template.
You’ll need to configure the workspace to hide these templates.
To hide built-in templates
From themenu, choose .
On the Reflection Workspace Settings window, click.
In the Configure Workspace defaults dialog box, select.
Test the configuration by creating a new document. When the Create New Document dialog box opens, the built-in templates are not displayed.
Deploy this workspace setting using one of the methods described in Section 7.0, Customize the Reflection Workspace.
