Issue



I have multiple Application and Device Control policies and would like to copy rule sets or rules between them or merge policies together. How can this be accomplished?


Solution



You can copy application control rule sets or individual rules between two different policies. You can also copy rule sets or rules within the same policy. The procedures here describe how to copy rule sets or rules between two different policies.

Copying application rule sets between Application and Device Control policies:
  1. In the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console, open the Application and Device Control policy that contains the rule sets that you want to copy
  2. Click Application Control
  3. On the Application Control page, under Application Control Rules Sets, right-click the rule set you want to copy, and then select Copy
  4. Click OK to close the current policy
  5. Under Application and Device Control Policies, select the target policy; under Tasks, click Edit the policy
  6. In the target policy, select Application Control
  7. Under Application Control Rule Sets, right-click and select Paste.

Copying application rules between Application and Device Control policies:
  1. In the console, open the Application and Device Control policy that contains the rule you want to copy
  2. Click Application Control

  4. Under Rules, right-click the rule that you want to copy and select Copy
  5. Click OK to close the rule set
  6. Click OK to close the policy
  7. Under Application and Device Control Policies, select the target policy
  8. Under Tasks, click Edit the policy
