Export Filters

If you have multiple N-able N-central servers and you need to standardize filters across servers, or if you want to share customer filters with colleagues, you can export the filters to a file. The exported file can be imported into another N-able N-central server.

This eliminates the administration overhead of spending time reproducing filters and potential for errors during creation.

  1. Click Configuration Filters.
  2. Click the check box next to the filters you want to export.
  3. Check boxes that are grayed out are default stock filters for N-able N-central.
  4. Click Export at the top of the page.

N-able N-central converts the filters to JSON files and bundled into single ZIP archive that downloads to your computer. For information on using the exported filters on another N-able N-central server, see Import filters.


There are some filter parameters that cannot be exported. Exporting filter using any of these parameters fails and displays an error message.
