Nested SAM Templates

Nested SAM Templates

I would like to have the capability to nest SAM templates.  If I have a solution that uses, for example, IIS, MySQL and CUPS I would like to create a single template that I could then add those three templates to.  Doing so would save me from having to recreate all three templates by adding the monitors into one compiled template.  Also, if I have multiple applications/solutions that use IIS I only have to modify one template (IIS) to change parameters in every template that it is a member of.  In a place that has even just 5 custom applications this would save hours of time.

This would also be useful if you could then apply it to a group verses selecting each node. this way if a node gets added to the group it would automatically add those monitors to the node being added.

I think you can use copy components from other template option and create a new template with all the component monitors you need without creating them again.

It is available in SAM 6.5

You would be better to use groups, and assign templates to the group. Then your servers could belong to one (or more) groups and have the template auto-assigned. If the server use changes (you remove CUPS, for instance), you would remove it from the group (either manually or using custom properties) and the template would be un-assigned.
