Import and export configuration templates

May 24, 2018

You can export the configuration templates from any NetScaler MAS appliance and import the file to same or other NetScaler MAS appliance 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 NetScaler MAS appliances which you may have exported from same or other NetScaler MAS appliance or created manually.

To export the configuration templates

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

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