Shared objects are objects such as SLB templates, class-lists, aFlex scripts, certificates and so on. These objects are used to extend the configuration of the primary application object such as a virtual server or server and can be referenced by multiple application objects.
Shared objects can be configured in a logical partition and during deploy they are pushed to the corresponding Thunder partition. Shared objects can also be configured in the provider space and referenced from one or more logical partitions belonging to one or more tenants within the provider.
For instance, provider admin can define a TCP template in a provider space. An application or tenant admin defining application related configuration in a logical partition can refer to the TCP template in the provider scope. This can achieved by creating a TCP template local to the logical partition and having it refer to the one in provider scope.
