Importing/Exporting policies

The Policy Manager allows you to import/export policies and policy rules. Existing policies can be imported/exported from/to an .xml file by clicking the Import Policies.../Export Policies... button. The policies can furthermore be imported from groups by clicking the Import from Groups... button. Policy rules can be imported/exported by clicking the Import.../Export... button and, in addition, they can be created using the Policy Rules Wizard.


Name conflicts (the existing and the imported policy names are identical) are solved during the import by adding a random string to the name of the imported policy. If a conflict cannot be resolved in this fashion (usually due to the new name being too long) the import finishes with the warning Unresolved policy name conflict. The solution is to delete or rename the conflicting policies or policy rules.
