When you Register a Template as an Admin toucan flag it as Public, this will make it available
to all users.

If you set  'allow.public.user.templates' to true this allows anyone to publish Public Templates,
we always advise against this.

A malicious user could upload a template with malicious code, which could then used by other

Public Templates are copied to every Secondary Storage volume in the Zone, so if everyone
Registered their  Templates as Public, you could run out of space.
