Dear Symantec,

You can currently export a Department or a Location in the console by right-mouse-clicking upon the item and then selecting "Export". However, when you go to another system, you cannot then right-mouse-click upon the same Resource Type and then select "Import" - there is no such option.

I can understand why you cannot import Resources, as the same Data Classes and Resource Associations might not be already set up in the target server, but if there is an isssue, these discrepancies could be highlighted in an error message with the option of importing the Resource without the custom associations and/or data classes or just a "do not import" option.

It seems strange that you can export an object but not be able to import it anywhere else and it would be very useful to be able to import a Resource object to another server as a part of a migration or for individual object backup.

So, can we please be able to import Resource objects as well as Export them?

Kindest regards,

QuietLeni

Do we know if this has been implemented yet or can we still not do this?

jellsworth,

Sorry, not as far as I have found.

What is the point of storing information, if you never look at it? Let us help you leverage your Inventory to create processes that will automate cumbersome tasks!
