Does anyone know the correct format to use in URL for a template under Advanced settings?
Example URL format used : /sites/contentTypeHub/Shared Documents/NajroCustomTemplate.pptx
When this option is used for mapping template to CT, this will fail when trying to use the new CT (distributed via content type hub) from another site and library. Have tried to store document both in library within CT hub and external library. Everyone have full read access to template library.
Checking with dev tools and console output in brower, the method /_api/web/GetList(@a1)/CreateDocumentAndGetEditLink throws an exception complaining of parameters for template.
Uploading a template directly to the CT works fine (also distributed via CT hub) but I would like to have a central location for the Templates. This worked fine in on-premise long time ago.

As far as i know You must upload the Document template to each Content Type when You are using the Content Type hub. Unfortunately It is not possible to "Centralize" the document templates in one Document library and refer to them in SharePoint Online.

I hope they add this asap, this is an important requirement for us.

@Andre Radtkecan you give more information about how you can link templates and from where?
I've tested this and it is only possible to add a link to a library in the current site collections. So no central place for template management for all templates of all site collections. Even not in the content type hub. (check error message in screenshot)

@Andre Radtke It only worked for me this way:
a page other than the contentypehub itself does not seem to work.
