This article describes how to export items from a Nexus Certificate Manager (CM) system to a file, which then can be used for import to another CM system. This task is done in the Administrator's workbench (AWB).

Typical scenarios are:

  • When a test system has been run for a while and it is time to prepare another CM system for production.
  • When a customer has problem with items in their system, these items can be exported and sent to Nexus support for investigation.
