17.4.1. Export Template Action

The templates collection contains an export action.
The export action exports a template to an Export storage domain. A destination storage domain is specified with a storage_domain reference.
The export action reports a failed action if a virtual machine template of the same name exists in the destination domain. Set the exclusive parameter to true to change this behavior and overwrite any existing virtual machine template.
