I’m new on Centreon’s administration, and really surprised by the click number needed to export configuration on pollers. If I’m not wrong (on 21.10) :

  1. Click pollers
  2. Click configure pollers
  3. Click name of the poller(s) to update
  4. Click Export configuration
  5. Click Move Export Files
  6. Click Restart Monitoring Engine
  7. Click Export

Is it the correct procedure, or is it possible to simplify it, with a clapi script or anything else ?


Thanks to the community

Hello @pierre1,

It’s almost the correct procedure, you don’t need to restart the monitoring engine. A reload is enough 99% of the time.

 You can also it with CLAPI with one command:

centreon -u admin -p centreon -a APPLYCFG -v <ID or Poller name>


Also in 21.10, you can export and reload the configuration on all of your platform with one click:


Please keep in mind that this feature is still in beta.

Thank you @itoussies , I’ve tested both (clapi and beta solution on 21.10) and they work fine.
