Exports an XProtect Smart Client view group and all contents to a JSON file.
Export-VmsViewGroup [-ViewGroup] <ViewGroup> [-Path] <String> [-Force] [<CommonParameters>]
Exports an XProtect Smart Client view group and all contents to a JSON file which can be used to import the view group on the same Management Server, or a different Management Server.
The selected view group can be a top-level view group, or a child view group. However, if you import a view group which has directly-attached views that are not nested in a child view group, those views will be lost when importing the view group as a top-level view group.
Connect-ManagementServer -ShowDialog -AcceptEula $viewGroup = Get-VmsViewGroup | Out-GridView -OutputMode Single $viewGroup | Export-VmsViewGroup -Path C:\temp\viewgroup.json
After ensuring there is an open connection to the Management Server, we prompt for a view group selection. The selected view group is then exported to a json file at C:\temp\viewgroup.json.
