This mApp allows you to export one or all of your security groups to a local file, and import them on another environment.

This is useful for migrating significant changes to Security groups from one environment to another.

This mApp creates an External Connection to your Cherwell database - You'll need to ensure that connection is configured before this mApp works.

It's also important to note that this mApp exposes the TrebuchetSecGroup table, an internal system table, so that it can process the updates to the security groups.

This is NOT read-only - You will need to control security rights for groups in Cherwell so that only admins can access it. We've disabled all controls on the TrebuchetSecGroups business object form so that inexperienced users have no way of modifying the data directly, aside from the two actions on our Security Group Manager form.

The buttons on the Security Group Manager form will be disabled if you don't have delete rights to the business object. This is done to prevent non-admins from using the form - Usually only admins have delete privileges, so we're checking for that permission in a disable expression on those buttons.

You won't be able to use this mApp on a SaaS environment due to the connection required to the Cherwell database.

Take a back-up of your system before using this mApp, as it does directly modify internal definitions when it updates the security group defs.
