Exporting and importing event types

If you have an event type on a server that you want to use on another server, you can export the custom event types from that server and then import it into the other server. The exported file is an XML file.

You can export custom events when you are displaying events by category.

Note: To export more than just event types, create an archive file instead. An archive includes the process diagram, operations, and other resources. When you create an archive, event types are included but not the event groups. (See About archive files .)
