Import a service template

Import service templates that were created on a another SolarWinds N-central server or from another SolarWinds N-central administrator. Service template files are in a compress XML file format.

For more information on saving service template XML file, see Export a service template.

When importing a service template that includes custom services based on Automation Manager Policies, the .ZIP file will include all associated Automation Manager Policies as well as the XML files for the custom services so that they are available when the template is associated to devices. When the .ZIP file is imported, the Automation Manager Policies and the custom services will automatically be uploaded at the same time as the template file. No further configuration in SolarWinds N-central is required to be able to use the imported template.

  1. Click ConfigurationMonitoringService Templates and click Import.

  3. Click Import Service Template.
  4. SolarWinds N-central verifies that the service configuration is valid, the service template and its associated services are imported.
  5. Click OK.
