A plugin for Foreman to sync provisioning templates from an external source
Clone or download
Latest commit 1b3c04e Jul 11, 2018



This plugin will sync the contents of the Foreman Community Templates repository (or a git repo of your choice) to your local Foreman instance. It can also be used to sync local directory, therefore any other version control systems can be used.


See Install a plugin in the Foreman documentation for how to install Foreman plugins.

The gem name is "foreman_templates".

RPM users can install the "tfm-rubygem-foreman_templates" or "rubygem-foreman_templates" packages.

Latest code

You can get the develop branch of the plugin by specifying your Gemfile in this way:

gem 'foreman_templates', :git => "https://github.com/theforeman/foreman_templates.git"


The plugin comes with settings providing sane defaults for import. You can change them under Administer > Settings, TemplateSync tab. These can be overriden for each import by passing options directly to a Rake task (see Usage section for how to do that)


For more detailed description, please see the plugin manual, select the approriate version

Integration with other Foreman Plugins

This plugin now fully relies on core importing capabilities. That means models inheriting from Template class are supported. To customize import behavior, you can override import_custom_data in your inheritting class. See example at remote execution plugin
