Build Configuration Template allows you to eliminate duplication of build configuration settings. If you want to have several similar (not necessarily identical) build configurations and be able to modify their common settings in one place without having to edit each configuration, create a build configuration template with those settings. Modifying template's settings affects all build configurations associated with this template.
You can create a build configuration template in two ways:
When a template is created, you can associate with it any number of build configurations.
If a build configuration is associated with a template, then settings of this build configuration are inherited from the template. However, some settings can be extended or redefined by means of configuration parameters in the inherited configuration:
Refer to Configuration Parameters for more details on redefining settings.
When you detach build configuration from a template, all settings from the template will be copied to the build configuration and enabled for editing.
Template which has at least one associated build configuration cannot be deleted.
