In some cases, you may want to use a specific Site Template (with all revisions you have done so far) in another instance of the azeti Engine (e.g. migrating the site configuration to another instance).
Converting a Site Template to a Component allows to reuse it globally for your installations. The conversion can be done quickly by altering the XML of the Site Template and declaring it to become a Component template. After an upload it will be recognized as a Component.
Log into the Dashboard. Go to Config/Provisioning → Sensor Templates → Site Templates and click on edit next to the location you wish to edit.
Click on the Dropdown Menu of 'Show as XML' (right arrow next to the button), which is right next to the red 'Toggle SU / Normal Mode' button, and choose 'with server nodes'. The XML file of the Site Template will appear.
Click on the 'Download' button and save the XML file.
In the XML file, two sections have to be edited in order to convert the Site Template to a Component Template. The following Code Blocks will provide an example of what needs to be changed.
