You can import a rule from a remote source into a particular rule category. For example, you can import a rule from one manager to another or import a rule provided by SolarWinds. You can only import one rule at a time.

  1. Open the Build > Rules view.
  2. On the Rules grid toolbar, click File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/0N0/Button-Gear(Gray)_17x14.png and select Import.

  3. Locate and open the folder that contains the rule you want to import.
  4. Select the rule file you want to import. These files are in XML format.

  5. Click Open to import the file.

  6. In the Import Rules form, click the Manager drop-down menu and select the manager to associate with this rule.
  7. In the Rule Categories & Tags pane, select the category that will store the imported rule.
  8. Click Import.

    The system imports the rules into the designated rule folder.
