How can I import security system configuration file in Vijeo XL

Published date: 31 July 2019

If your project's security mode is set to Local Only, then you can import a configuration from a previously exported file.

To import the security system configuration:
  1. In the main Security System dialog, click Backup. The Import/Export dialog is displayed.
  2. Click Import from file. A standard Open dialog is displayed.
  3. Locate the configuration file (*.dat) that you want to import, and then click OK. You will be prompted for the configuration's main password.
  4. Type the password, and then click OK. The Import from File dialog is displayed.
  5. Select an import method:
    • Import only settings that do not conflict: Merge the imported settings with the current project settings. In the case of conflicts, keep the current settings.
    • Import all settings and replace conflicts: Merge the imported settings with the project settings. In the case of conflicts, use the imported settings.
    • Replace the current settings: Completely replace the current project settings with the settings imported from the file.
  6. Click OK.


Tip: You can also import the configuration during runtime by calling the ImportSecuritySystem function.
