Citrix Application Delivery Management service

Import and export configuration templates

You can export the configuration templates from any Citrix Application Delivery Management (ADM) appliance and import the file to the same or other Citrix ADM appliance at any time in the future. The configuration templates data (such as configuration commands, variable definitions, and parameters) are not lost.

You can export the configuration templates to a .json file format and save it in the local folder. You can import configuration template .json files into Citrix ADM appliances which you might have exported from the same or other Citrix ADM appliance or created manually.

To export the configuration templates:

  1. Navigate to Networks > Configuration Jobs > Configuration Templates.

  2. Click Add to create the configuration template.

    Export configuration templates

  3. On the Create Configuration Template page, specify the configuration template name, and choose the instance type. Under Configuration Editor, select configuration source as Configuration Template from the drop-down menu. You can drag the existing configuration templates to the configuration editor. Click OK.

    Select a configuration template

  4. Navigate to Networks > Configuration Jobs > Configuration Templates to view the templates created in the list of Configuration Templates.

    The corresponding configuration template gets downloaded on your local system in .json format.

To import the configuration templates:

  1. Navigate to Networks > Configuration Jobs > Configuration Templates and click the Import button. Select the path where you have the .json files of the configuration template and upload the .json files. ­It is highly recommended to upload the .json files that you have exported already.
