Severity: 3-Major


When importing a declarative policy with an updated template, the operation uses the old version of the template, which is saved on the machine.


The re-created declarative policy is based on the old template, which is saved without the changes that were made in the template.


Declarative policy is created from a user-defined template and then re-created after updating the template.


Create new template and use it when recreating the declarative policy.

Fix Information

While creating the policy, if the saved template on the machine is older than the template file, the system replaces the file on the machine and uses the updated template.
