Import/Export Algorithm Configurations

The Import/Export option enables you to migrate your algorithm configurations from one Moogsoft AIOps instance to another. For example, from a test system to your production environment. This option exports Cookbooks and their Recipes, Tempus, the default merge group and all custom merge groups, from one Moogsoft AIOps instance and imports them into another.

Export your algorithm configurations

In the Moogsoft AIOps instance that you want to export the algorithm configurations from:

  1. Click Import/Export in the Algorithms section of the Settings tab in Moogsoft AIOps and select the Export tab.

  2. Click Download to download the file containing all the configurations into a file.

    The file name format is systemconfig_<date><time>.export.

Import your algorithm configurations

In the Moogsoft AIOps instance that you want to import the algorithm configurations into:

  1. Click Import/Export in the Algorithms section of the Settings tab in Moogsoft AIOps to display the Import tab.

  2. Click Select File ... and find the export file that you want to use.

    A list of configuration items that will be imported displays.

  3. Select whether you want to overwrite existing configurations or leave them unaltered. The import function uses the name of the configuration to determine whether it already exists. For example, if it imports Cookbook1 and Cookbook1 already exists, if you have selected Overwrite duplicates, the imported Cookbook1 overwrites the existing one. If you have selected Skip duplicates, the imported Cookbook1 is ignored. If an imported Cookbook has a different name but identical properties to an existing one, the new one will be imported.

  4. Click Import to import your algorithm configurations.

Note

If you have customized your process_output_of value for any Cookbook or Tempus algorithm so that it processes the output of non-default Moolets, it is best practice to ensure that your imported configuration matches your data flow in Moogfarmd.
