This topic provides instructions on how to import groups containing subgroups and reports from other instances of Security Analytics into Report Groups panel. Reports must be in a valid binary file that was exported from another Security Analytics instance.
During the import process, you select the binary file and specify whether existing reports with the same name must be overwritten or not by the reports contained in the binary import file.

  • If you choose to overwrite, all duplicate rules, lists and reports are overwritten by the contents of the binary import file.
  • If you choose not to overwrite, and a duplicate rule, list or report exists in the target folder, the import fails and display a message about duplicate reports.

You cannot import reports to a specific report group. The imported files are stored in the Allroot folder.
