Creates a parameter template.

You can configure a number of parameters at a time by using a parameter template and then apply the parameter template to an ApsaraDB for RDS instance. For more information, see Use a parameter template to manage parameters.

Note Parameter templates are supported only for RDS instances that run MySQL.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.
