Import and export policy templates

Jun 17, 2013

Policy templates are local to the computer on which you are running the console to manage your site. You can transfer policy configurations between environments, including other sites that you manage on the computer running the console.

You transfer templates by importing or exporting them. This allows you to:
  • Implement policy configurations from servers in other sites
  • Create backups of your template files to aid recovery of policy configurations
  • Supply policy configurations from your site to aid Citrix Support in troubleshooting issues
  • Implement policy configurations created by Citrix Support to resolve issues in your site

    Note: If you import a template with the same name as an existing template, you can choose to overwrite the existing template or save the template with a different name that is generated automatically.
