etc.

SMC behavior during imports

  • When a firewall specified in the import file is not connected to the SMC server, the whole import will be canceled.
  • When a custom property already exists for a firewall connected to the SMC server, the value of this property will be changed for the firewall in question.
  • When a custom property does not exist, it will be created and the corresponding value will be assigned to it for every firewall specified in the import file.
  • When a custom property already exists on the SMC server and has been assigned a value for a particular firewall, its value will be replaced with the value assigned to this firewall in the import file.
