Exporting rules

You can export rules to an XML file for importing to another server. Rule export and import operations must be done on BMC Network Automation systems with the same software release. The ability to export and import rules is driven by these operational requirements:

  • Selectively import new rules distributed by BMC as part of your software maintenance service.
  • When troubleshooting rules, you can supply BMC Customer Support with a rule export file containing the rules in question. BMC Customer Support can analyze and update the rules for re-importing by the user.
  • For end-users with multiple servers, you can now distribute standard rules across the servers.

You can queue multiple export tasks to run once or on a recurring basis. You can export all rule sets, selected rule sets, or selected rules.

To view the rule export tasks, navigate to Network > Import/Export > Rule Export.
