You can export and import policies rather than recreating the policies. All the settings that are associated with the policy are automatically exported.
You may need to export a policy for the following reasons:
You update the management server from an older release to a newer release. You want to update the new management server with the policies that you previously customized.
You want to export a policy for use at a different site.
You export and import each policy one at a time. Once you export a file, you import it and apply it to a group or only to a location. You can export a shared or non-shared policy for a specific location in the Clients page.
