Files to import
To import a policy from an XML file, type the path and name of the file or use the Browse (...) button.

Replace duplicates with items imported
Select to overwrite any existing policy or condition of the same name if it already exists on this Database Engine instance.

If this option is not selected, an existing condition that is using the same condition expression will not cause an error.
