Import/Export

The Centreon Web Import/Export module has been designed to help users configure several Centreon Web platforms in a faster and easier way, thanks to its import/export mechanism.

From a properly configured source environment, you can use the AWIE module to export chosen objects towards a target environment. Those objects will be replicated.

Centreon AWIE is based on CLAPI commands but its added value is to allow using Centreon Web UI instead of commands lines.

Installation​

Installing packages​

Run the following commands as a privileged user:

yum install centreon-awie

UI installation​

Go to Administration > Extensions > Manager and search awie. Click on Install selection:

Export configuration​

Once you have properly configured all Centreon Web objects you need (Poller, Hosts, Services, Contacts, Time Periods... ) then you can export them towards another Centreon Web platform by going to Configuration > Import/Export menu.

Default page is Export one.

Exported Archive Name​

Be aware that if you change the name of the created archive, you will not be able to import it until the name of the archive is identical to the name of the file contained in the archive.

Poller Export​

imaage

If you set the All check-box to yes (default value is no) then all configured pollers will be exported with their configuration files (for engine, broker...) after you have clicked on Export button.

If you want to export only one poller then type its exact name in Filter field (one single value is accepted, this field has no list of items proposed).

Hosts Export​

imaage

Hosts​

imaage

Same principle as Poller export but :

If you choose to export all hosts, then host configurations, linked host templates and linked services templates will be exported but hosts will be created in target environment without their services. However, you will be able to create services by selecting value "Yes" for the Create Services linked to the Template too radio-button in Configuration > Hosts page, for each host. Save host configuration and export configuration.

If you export a specific host by using the Filter field (only one host at the same time) then the host will be created in the new platform with all its services.

Use the Filter field for one single value if you want to export one specific host template.
