The configuration of One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) can be exported (for manual archiving, or to migrate it to another SPS unit) from the Basic Settings > System page. Use the respective action buttons to perform the desired operation.

You also have the option to export the configuration SPS into a local file using the console. For details, see Exporting and importing the configuration of One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) using the console.

Figure 133: Basic Settings > System — Exporting the SPS configuration

To export the configuration of SPS

  1. Navigate to Basic Settings > System > Export configuration.

  2. Select how to encrypt the configuration:

    • To export the configuration file without encryption, select No encryption.


      One Identity does not recommend exporting the SPS configuration without encryption, as it contains sensitive information such as password hashes and private keys.

    • To encrypt the configuration file with a simple password, select Encrypt with password and enter the password into the Encryption password and Confirm password fields.

      NOTE: SPS accepts passwords that are not longer than 150 characters and supports the following characters:

      • Letters A-Z, a-z

      • Numbers 0-9

      • The space character

      • Special characters: !"#$%&'()*+,-./:;<>=?@[]\^-`{}_|

    • To encrypt the configuration file with GPG, select GPG encryption. Note that this option uses the same GPG key that is used to encrypt automatic system backups, and is only available if you have uploaded the public part of a GPG key to SPS at Basic Settings > Management > System backup. For details, see Encrypting configuration backups with GPG.

  3. Click Export.

    NOTE: The exported file is a gzip-compressed archive. On Windows platforms, it can be decompressed with common archive managers such as the free 7-Zip tool.

    The name of the exported file is <hostname_of_SPS>-YYYMMDDTHHMM.config, the -encrypted or -gpg suffix is added for password-encrypted and GPG-encrypted files, respectively.
