Is it possible to export/import security settings of a publication using Content Porter (I'm using Content Porter and SDL Tridion 2013 SP1.1)

I have tried exporting and importing a Publication Only but it did not change the security settings.

Is there anything I am missing? or it is not possible to export/import the security settings of a publication?

  • Yeh. Although I think that you phrased the question more elegantly. Sep 2, 2016 at 11:19

As per the documentation (2013, Web8), it explicitly doesn't export Permissions for Publications, Folders, and Structure Groups
