Deleting Configlets

Only unused Configlets can be deleted. If a Configlet is assigned to a device or a container, it cannot be deleted from the inventory. To delete a specific Configlet, its association should be removed from the devices and container.

  1. Select a Configlet in the grid. A “trash can” icon will appear.
  2. Click the Trash icon to delete the Configlet.

Importing and Exporting Configlets

You can import and export Configlets using the CloudVision graphical user interface (GUI). This enables you to easily share Configlets with others and back up specific Configlets.

For Configlets shared with you by another system user, you import Configlets from your desktop. When you share Configlets with another system user, you export Configlets to your desktop. You use the Configlets page to import and export Configlets or Configlet Builders.

Note: Both Configlets and Configlet Builders can be imported and exported using the GUI.

Protection from Overwriting Configlets or Configlet Builders

CloudVision provides protection from accidentally overwriting exiting Configlets or Configlet Builders when importing a Configlet or Configlet Builder.

If you import a file that contains one or more Configlets or Configlet Builders that are named the same as Configlets or Configlet Builders already in CVP, the system automatically adds a suffix to the names of the items you are importing. The suffix that is added is in the format of “<number>”.

Importing Configlets or Configlet Builders

You import Configlets or Configlet Builders into CVP when another system user has shared a Configlet or Configlet Builder with you. Once you import Configlets or Configlet Builders, the imported items are available for use in CVP. You import Configlets or Configlet Builders from your desktop using the Configlets page.
