SMP 7.5 - Can you export and import Altiris Security Roles?

Created: 21 Mar 2014 | 2 comments

In the Account Managment -> Roles section, I see that you can export a role, but I don't see an option to import a role.  Is it possible to export/import roles?  Is there a best practice for doing this?

We have a couple of environments and it would be a pain to have to set up roles from scratch over and over again.

You have three options:
1. Use the exportimportutil.exe tool that comes with the smp.
2. Setup standalone replication between the two smp's.
3. Setup hierarchy replication between the two smp's.

Click on "Default" organizational view

Click on [filter...] button in right corner

Set checkbox on "Role"  (Security Resource -> Trustee)
