      Description

      When creating a template you select everything on the graph you want to include or don't select anything and the system automatically selects everything.

      This causes two problems, for controller services like DistributedMapCacheServer and all reporting tasks, there are no processors that reference them so therefore it's impossible (barring manual xml creation) to include them in a template. The second problem arose when I was working on improving a template then needed to switch tasks. So I created a new version of the template then destroyed my NiFi instance and rebuilt. Unfortunately I accidentally had one processor selected when creating the template and that one processor was all that was included.

      So it would be very nice to have a fleshed out UI window for template creation that includes being able to specifically select controller services and reporting tasks. As well as give an overview of the template before creation (count of processors, types, etc.).
