  • They can be imported/exported from LogRhythm to a deployment.
  • The import and export LogRhythm Client Console version must match.
  • The import KB version must be equal to or greater than the export KB version.
  • Any new custom objects are created on import.
  • They always import with the status set to Development and must be manually promoted.
  • MPE Policies must be updated after import to enable new rules.
