fix

You cannot change the name of a default policy template or security check. You can make a copy of a default policy template or security check, however, and save that copy using a new name. Follow the respective instructions below to create a copy of a default template or check.

To create a copy of an existing template and save it with a new name:

  1. Start NetIQ Vulnerability Manager and sign in.
  2. In the tree pane, expand Security Knowledge > Policy Templates.
  3. Click the appropriate template category.
  4. Right-click the specific template you want to copy and select Edit. This displays the Policy Template Wizard.
  5. In the Policy Template Wizard, make any necessary changes to the template and click Save As.
  6. Type the new name you want to use in the text box and click OK.

To create a copy of an existing security check and save it with a new name:

  1. Start NetIQ Vulnerability Manager and sign in.
  2. In the tree pane, expand Security Knowledge > Security Checks > NetIQ Checks.
  3. Expand the appropriate check category and click the folder that contains the check you want to copy.
  4. Right-click the specific check and select Edit. This displays the Security Check Wizard.
  5. In the Policy Template Wizard, make any necessary changes to the check and click Save As.
  6. Type the new name you want to use in the text box and click OK.


note

Not all security checks are editable in Vulnerability Manager. To see which checks can be edited, find the Edit column in the list pane and look for checks with an Edit setting of Yes. Checks with a setting of No cannot be edited.



note

If you save a default NetIQ policy template or security check to a new name, Vulnerability Manager lists the copied template or check under My Templates or My Checks, respectively, in the tree pane.
