Import BeyondTrust Policy

Privilege Management for Windows policies can be imported to and exported from McAfee ePO as XML files. The XML format means the policies can be migrated and shared between Privilege Management for Windows management platforms.

Importing and exporting policies from the Utilities section of a policy differs from importing and exporting policies from the McAfee ePO Policy catalog, as the utility exports a BeyondTrust standard XML file. When exporting from the Policy Catalog, the exported XML uses the ePO policy format XML and as such is not suitable for import/export to the MMC.

To import a Privilege Management for Windows XML Configuration:

  1. Select the Utilities node and click Import Privilege Management Policy.
  2. Browse to the location of the XML file to import.
  3. If you want to merge the imported settings with the settings already contained within the policy, check the Merge imported settings option. If you want to overwrite the existing policy with the imported policy, uncheck the Merge imported settings option.
  4. Click Load Configuration to complete the import.
