You can make a copy of an existing smart folder, add or change filter criteria, and then rename the folder accordingly. You can also create a local copy of the global smart folder in its current state for editing purposes. In My Smart Folders, you can save a folder copy only in My Smart Folders. In Global Smart Folders however, you can save a folder copy in either My Smart Folders or Global Smart Folders. You must have superuser permissions to save a global smart folder copy in Global Smart Folders. Note that when the original global smart folder is updated, information in your local copy is not updated.
To save a copy of a smart folder:
- Click My Smart Folders to save a folder copy in this tab.
Click Global Smart Folders to save a folder copy in either this tab or My Smart Folders. To save a smart folder copy in Global Smart Folders, log in as a superuser account.
- Select the smart folder that you want to save as a copy.
- Click Save copy as.
- Grid Manager saves the folder copy in My Smart Folders when you save the folder copy in this tab.
The Save Smart Folder As dialog box appears when you perform this function in Global Smart Folders. Select one of the following:
- MySmartFolders: Saves the copy in My Smart Folders.
- Global Smart Folders: Saves the copy in Global Smart Folders.
For the folder copy, the appliance appends the word Copy to the original name of the smart folder. You can change the name of the folder at anytime by editing the folder.
Printing and Exporting Data in Smart Folders
You can print the list of networks that are on the current smart folder page, or you can export all the data in CSV (comma separated value) format. For information, see Scheduling Tasks and Importing and Exporting Data using CSV Import.
