I have created a managed package which contains a lightning community template which was created by exporting it from the lightning community.

Now, I would like to make some modification to the template which was package, but there appears to be no way of updating it.

Need some guidance on how to update a lightning community template??

There is a similar question but it hasn't been answered yet. How to update an exported Lightning Community Template

This is a limitation currently in communities packaging. There is no way to update the whole template. You will have to again export everything as a new template.

Note if you already have a client that has installed it, you might just want to make the change in sandbox and push to pros via changesets.

For new clients you will have to build a new one.

These limitations are listed here

  • Thanks!.. However there is a statement in the same page stating "If you upgrade a managed template package, existing communities that are based on the upgraded template aren’t updated.".. This is when I thought that we could update the template.
