    Hi team.


    I´m using BNA 14.2.1 and trying to set up Compass properly. Ashamed to say, I haven´t done this earlier,

    but now when trying to link a template to a Product group, it doesn´t work when clicking on the

    "Link template" button.


    I have created a Configuration, added it to a template, but when trying link the template, it just doesn´t

    happen anything.

    I´m clicking on the drop-down button named "Link Template", then a (kind of) button is shown and when clicking

    on this button - nothing happes.

    I have attached a picture of the step where I stop.


    I have tried to figure out if there is a pre-step that I´ve missed, but I can´t find anything.


    I have tested on two different BNA-servers, 14.2.0 and 14.2.1.


    Is there anyone with bright ideas of what might be done to get it to work?

    Hi Ulf,


    I tried the below on a 14.2.0 BNA server - starting by defining a configuration for ftp server




    then creating a templete with only the ftp sever setup and saving




    then going into monitor and expanding the predefined (i did also create my own mgmt group)



    And when standing on the test2 fabric, the link template button i see my template




    And after selecting my ftp server template i was done




    and the drift is visible




    From what you wrote this is what you did.  Can share the configuration and template view, too?  What Java version is used for the  BNA fat client?


    kind regards,

    Thanks Martin.


    Your answer got me on the right path.

    I could see that you didn´t have a orange dot (an incomplete icon, infront of the configuration name, which I had and didn´t react on.

    So I took a look in my Configuration and found that I had incompleted info in "User Credentials".


    After completing the item, it works fine.


    Many thanks!!

    I know this is old, but I'm having the same problem and I am certain my configuration is ok.  I'm doing this for user credentials rather than FTP.  My template shows the half yellow dot and i'm not sure why....
