If you have multiple Orion servers, you can share policy report definitions between them. You can also share your policy report definitions with other SolarWinds users by exporting them to THWACK.

Share policy reports between Orion servers

You can export a policy report definition as an XML file, and then import it to another Orion server. The exported file also includes the underlying policy and rule definitions.

Export a policy report definition as a file

  1. Click My Dashboards >  Network Configuration > Compliance.
  2. Click Manage Policy Reports.
  3. Select a report, and click Export as File.

    The XML file is saved in your \Downloads directory. The file name is based on the report name.

Import a policy report definition

  1. Click My Dashboards >  Network Configuration > Compliance.
  2. Click Manage Policy Reports.
  3. Click Import.
  4. Click Choose File, and select a policy report previously exported as a file.
  5. Click Submit.

    The policy report and underlying policies and rules are created on the Orion server. By default, the policy report is not assigned to a folder. You can edit the report to assign it to a folder.

Export a policy report definition to THWACK

  1. Click My Dashboards >  Network Configuration > Compliance.
  2. Click Manage Policy Reports.
  3. Select a report, and click Export to THWACK.
  4. If prompted, enter your THWACK user name and password, and click Log In.
