Importing and exporting policies and rule sets

Full policies or only rule sets can be exported to a .cab file that contains .json files. The .cab file can then be re-imported later. This makes it possible to:

  • Transfer a security policy from a pre-production environment to a production environment,
  • Transfer a policy or rule set to SES Evolution‘s technical support to make it easier to debug issues.

When you export a policy or rule set, you export the version selected in the right side of the panel, represented by the icon. When you import a custom policy or rule set that already exists, its version number will be incremented each time.

For further information on how to manage versions of policies and rule sets, refer to the section Managing versions of a policy or a rule set.
