Deploying predefined process templates

When you create a project area, you must specify a template that defines the process that the project area will follow. You can create or import a template, or you can use one of the predefined templates. Before you can use the predefined templates, you must deploy them to the repository.

Before you begin

You must be logged in to the Application Administration page of the web client. See Logging in for project administrators and team leads (web). You must be a member of either the JazzProjectAdmins group or the JazzAdmins group.


  1. On the Application Administration page of the web client, click the Templates tab.
  2. Click Deploy Predefined Templates.
    A message asks you to confirm that you want to deploy the templates.
    Attention: If you upgrade from a previous release, deploying templates overwrites the previous versions of those templates. If you have customized the templates and want to preserve those customizations, open the templates in the Process Template editor; change their IDs and names; and save them before you deploy the new predefined templates.


The predefined templates are deployed, and you can now select one of them when you create a project area.
