When a definitions imports (Eg. Classifier Policy) set name already exists in the target appliance, the import process will skip the data set import, instead of replacing it.

    Hello there, this capability already exists in the product and is supported as long as the 'Overwrite Classifier Policy' and 'Fully synchronize group members' check-boxes are selected.

    In addition, when exporting Discover Sensitive Data definition, please make sure 'Exclude group members' check-box is not selected. With these options, you are able to replace existing Discover Sensitive Data Scenario plus its corresponding Policy and Groups. Please note there are warnings displayed when importing the definition with these option selected.
