Adds a certificate template to the CA.
Add-CATemplate [-Name] <String> [-Force] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]
The Add-CATemplate cmdlet adds a certificate template to the CA for issuing.
A certificate template is a preconfigured list of certificate settings that allows users and computers to enroll for certificates without having to create complex
certificate requests. Certificate templates allow for the customization of a certificate that can be issued by the CA. The template defines items such as the cryptographic
types, validity and renewal periods, and certificate purposes.
The certificate templates are stored in Active DirectoryDomain Services (ADDS). Many default certificate templates are added to ADDS when the CA role service is installed.
The Add-CATemplate cmdlet does not allow you to create new templates or duplicate existing templates.
