Saving a Workspace as a Template

Open a workspace and select File > Save As Template. The Save as Template dialog opens.

You can edit the default location file path and file name that FME Workbench assigns to the template.

To connect and publish the template to an FME Flow, check Publish to FME Flow. Note that you must have an FME Flow configured on your system.

Select or type a Category in which to store the template. If you have not previously saved a template, the Category field pull-down list will not display any selections.

Enter a Description for the template, if desired. Alternatively, check Use Extended Description to enter a longer description and use formatting tools.

The tabbed areas of the Extended Description option allow you to catalog information applicable to the current workspace. For a description of the information to include in these areas, and how the information is displayed in a workspace, see Workspace Parameters.

Under Files to Add, any associated datasets are listed. The default is to include the dataset as part of the template. To include any other associated datasets or additional files, open the file browser or advanced browser beside Add more files.

If feature caching is enabled, and you want to include the data caches with the template, check Include Feature Caches. When you include feature caches, you can run and inspect select portions of a workspace created from a template, without necessarily having to run the workspace in full. FME includes only caches that are valid (up-to-date).

Click OK to save the template and close the dialog.
