Deploy Templates

What are Templates

From our glossary:

A Template is a static definition of GorillaStack resources. Templates can be deployed to create many resources (Rules, Tag Groups) at once.

You can use Templates to quickly cover common automation use cases without having to go through lots of manual configuration.
