Export and Import Searches

XenCenter enables you to save search queries as XenSearch (.xensearch) files. When you export and save a search query, only the search query is saved, and not the results.

  1. On the Search tab, click Export.
  2. Enter a file name and location and then click Save.
  1. On the Search tab, click Import. Alternatively, on the XenCenter File menu, select Import Search.
  2. Browse to locate the exported search file (file extension .xensearch ) and then click Open. The imported search will be performed immediately, displaying results on the Search tab.

To save the imported search as a new custom search, click Save and then specify a Name for the search query and choose the Location where the search query metadata will be stored. Click Save to confirm.
