An alerting template is a configuration of features such as Health Rules, Policies, Actions, Action Suppression, Schedules, and Email Digests. You can save the Alert & Respond configuration of an existing application as a template. Templates help maintain consistent configuration across various applications regardless of their location, version, or environment.

How to Use an Alerting Template

You can save the Alert and Respond configuration of an existing application as a template. You can use the Save as new template option. You can apply the template to other applications to replicate the configuration. 

After configuring an alerting template, if you require to change the configuration and apply the changes to all the applications, use the Overwrite an existing template option. The existing template is overwritten. You can then re-apply the template to the desired applications. For more information, see Configure and Manage Alerting Templates.
