Exporting an AppExpert Application to a Template File

Jan 07, 2016

When you export an AppExpert application, all application-configuration information is exported to a template file, and all deployment-specific information is exported to a deployment file. The string _deployment is automatically appended to the name of the template file to create the name of the deployment file. Both files are in XML format. If you choose to export the application template file to the NetScaler appliance, the template file is stored in the /nsconfig/nstemplates/applications directory and the deployment file is stored in the /nsconfig/nstemplates/applications/deployment_files/ directory. If you have configured a NetScaler Gateway application, you can choose to include the NetScaler Gateway policies in the template.
