When thinking of the structure of your repository, you might identify block of structures that will always be the same. For instance, when you create a Domain, you get subfolders Workspaces, Sections and Templates. You might also want such behavior when doing case management, so as to organize the structure of your case, ... Structure templates are actually a way of defining an automated structure that is bound to a folderish content type.

In simple words: "Each time I create a document of such type, I will also instantiate children documents of this type and this type... with this ACL (security) configuration". With Studio, you can contribute several of such rules.

Please note that there can be only one structure template for each document type, since it is meant to create a structure without prompting the user for a choice.
