I'd like my users to be able to select their DNS servers during vfiler creation from a drop down. I could just put the comma separated list of DNS servers in the user input as an "Enum" type, but I will have multiple workflows that need to do this and as such I'd prefer to centralize my list of DNS servers in a template. Is there any way to access the information in a template from a Query input type? Thanks!
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

There is no real way for accessing Templates for User Inputs. Just thinking off the top of my head, there are a couple of possibilities, or tips/tricks that might help you:
Again, the 'better' answer is really to get a new datasource based on a file that contains your DNS information. This way later on, you can update the file with more information... re-acquire into WFA... and you won't have to update any of your workflows... they'll automatically pull in the new DNS information after the latest acquisition of that datasource file.
Hope this helps,

I like Kevin's first recommendation of creating a new datasource, and as this is being used for user inputs, it works better than suggestions I've made in the past of creating a function for mapping stuff like datacenter to DNS server list or DFM servers. Nice idea, Kevin.
