Export policies for backup or to import to another Control Manager server of the same version.
Control Manager exports policy settings but not policy targets.
A parent policy stays as a parent after the export or import.
A child policy becomes a parent after the export. Consequently, it is a parent after the import.
Control Manager cannot import a policy if its name is the same as an existing child policy. If the existing policy is not a child, Control Manager overwrites it after the import.
The Policy Management screen appears.
The screen refreshes to display policies created for the selected managed product.
If you exported a single policy, the resulting file has the extension *.cmpolicy.
If you exported several policies, the resulting file is a compressed (*.zip) file containing the individual .cmpolicy files.
You can import an entire *.zip file or import individual *.cmpolicy files one by one.
If the policy already exists in the policy list, a confirmation prompt appears, asking if you want to overwrite the existing policy.
Click OK to proceed.
The screen refreshes and displays the imported policy at the top of the list.
