Import and export configuration templates

You can export the configuration templates from any Citrix Application Delivery Management (ADM). You can also import the file to the same or another Citrix ADM at any time in future. The configuration templates data (like 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. This file might be new or the one that you have exported from the same or other Citrix ADM.

To export the configuration templates:

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

  2. Click on the Add button to create the configuration template.

To import the configuration templates:

    Note

    • Every new imported template is stored with a new id string.

    • You can import the configuration templates only if the file is saved in the .json format. If you import the configuration templates other than .json files, from your local system, it shows an error and fails the import of the files.
