    ePO 4.6 - Snapshot of current policies.




      Is there a way/s to get a summary of existing policies(with details for each policy) in ePO so that in future if some changes happen I can go back and compare the changes.


      It's like taking a snapshot of current policies and then if any policy gets deleted or something simiar happens I can go back to the old snapshot and see the differences.


      Reference to any KB article or any thoughts/ideas will be much appreciated.

          You can export policies with computer name in excel file and later you can compare if some thing goes wrong.


          How to create query :


            1. Go to ePO console > Queries & Report.
            2. Select New Query.
            3. Select Feature Group = Policy Management and Result Type as Applied Policies.
            4. Select Chart as Table
            5. Select Columns:
              1. Computer Name
              2. Policy
            6. Now move to next option : Filter and select product (You can choose which product policies you want to export)
            7. Now Run the query, a complete list with Computer name with assinged policies will come.


          You can also divide results with Servers and Workstations, you need to add one more filter as OS Platform = Server.

            That's one way of having a backup for sure, thanks ansarias.


            I was looking for more like backing up all the poicies available in ePO server.


            It's unfortunate that snapshot is available only from 5.0 and above.


            Thanks again.

              For ePO 4.x you can export policy assignment from policy catalog
