Filtering a list of templates

The Templates page has multiple options for searching, filtering, and sorting the displayed list.

  • The My, and Company, Skytap, and All filters display templates by owner.

    • My – templates that you own.
    • Company – templates owned by other users that have been shared with you (if you are a user), or all of the templates in the company account (if you’re an administrator).
    • Skytappublic templates owned by Skytap. If this tab is not visible, you do not have access to these templates.
    • All – all templates you have access to, regardless of owner.
  • The Search field helps find templates by name, owner, label, tag, and more. For more information about how search works, see Using search.
  • The remaining filters (listed below) can be used individually or combined. Filters persist on the page until they are removed. To remove a filter, click Clear.
  • After applying a filter or search term, use the Sort by options to sort the list in ascending or descending order by various characteristics (date created, size, etc).
