Task group templates
A task group template is a container object that contains tasks and other task groups. When you create a task group template, you must associate task and task group templates. Task group templates also support the use of variables.
To perform procedures in this section, you must have Task Administrator permission. For information, see Task Management System permissions.
There are two different types of task group templates:
- Basic — Uses sequencing to strictly specify the order of the tasks. For more information, see Basic task group templates - Sequencing type.
- Advanced — Uses a flow mechanism that establishes how the tasks relate to each other. For advanced task group templates, you can create flow between tasks and task groups to indicate how they behave at runtime. For more information, see Advanced task group template - Standard type.
Before you create a task group template, you should create all the task and task group templates that it contains.
One predefined recommended task group template is automatically installed with BMC Change Management for integration with BMC BladeLogic Client Automation. As an administrator, you can predefine additional task group templates to use with BMC Change Management.To change the sequencing of tasks in a task group, you must have Administrator permissions or be a user with Unrestricted Access permissions.
