Template groups enable you to organize your custom templates into your own groups. Also, for Windows based templates, My Template Groups provide the possibility to use your own licensing type regardless of your billing plan.

For your convenience, My Template Groups have hierarchical (tree) structure:

  • Template group – e.g.OS
  • Child group
  • Templates

You may assign templates directly to the group, or create a child group(s) and assign templates there.


To add a template group:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's My Template Groups menu.
  2. On the page that follows, click the "+" button.
  3. Give a name to your group in the window that appeared.
  4. If you are planning to use this group for Windows templates, specify the Windows Licensing type: MAK, KMS, or Own (user license).

    This licensing type will apply to all templates directly in the group and in the child groups.

  5. For KMS licensing, set the following parameters:
    • Server label – the name of the KMS server
    • KMS server host – the hostname of the licensing server
    • KMS server port – the port used to connect to the licensing server
  6. Click Save.

On the page that appears, you can add a template or a child group to the group, edit the group, or delete it.

    • Click the group's label to see the child groups or the list of templates assigned to this group; click the child group label to see the list of templates assigned to the child group.
    • Click the Edit icon next to a group or a child group to edit its name and the type of Windows licensing; click Save button upon making the necessary changes.
    • Click Delete icon to delete a group or a child group. The templates which were assigned to this group/child group will become your ungrouped templates.

    • If you are planning to use this group for Windows templates, specify the Windows Licensing type: MAK, KMS, or Own (user license).

      This licensing type will apply to all templates in the child group. Providing you have indicated the licensing type for the parent group - both types will apply
