Exporting and importing rights and roles

You can export rights and role definitions from any zone if you want to save part or all of the information to a file. You can then import all or part of that information into a new zone and modify it, if needed. For example, you can choose to export all the rights you have defined in one zone but create a completely new set of role definitions for those rights in another zone. Exporting and importing provides a convenient way to copy and paste multiple rights and role definitions at one time.

Rights, roles, and role assignments are all inherited from parent to child zones, so there is no need to import or export any authorization information within a zone hierarchy. However, if you have multiple parent zones—for example, representing different geographical regions—you might want to use export and import to copy authorization information from one geographical region’s zone to another.
