Severity: 3-Major


Exported Policy in XML format cannot be imported.


Exported XML policies cannot be imported back into the system without manual manipulation


Metacharacter overrides are defined on a Websocket URL in the policy.


If such a policy has already been exported only manual manipulation would allow it to be imported again.

Fix Information

Policy export now correctly creates valid XML Policies for configurations with metachar overrides configured on Websocket URLs.
