Import an AppLocker Policy into a GPO

Updated: November 9, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic describes the steps to import an AppLocker policy into a Group Policy Object (GPO).

AppLocker policies can be created as local security policies and modified like any other local security policy, or they can be created as part of a GPO and managed by using Group Policy. You can create AppLocker policies on any supported computer. For information about which Windows editions are supported, see Requirements to Use AppLocker.

ImportantImportant
Follow your organization's standard procedures for updating GPOs. For information about specific steps to follow for AppLocker policies, see Maintaining AppLocker Policies.

To complete this procedure, you must have Edit Setting permission to edit a GPO. By default, members of the Domain Admins group, the Enterprise Admins group, and the Group Policy Creator Owners group have this permission.

  1. In the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC), open the GPO that you want to edit.

  2. In the console tree under Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Application Control Policies, click AppLocker.

  3. Right-click AppLocker, and then click Import Policy.

  4. In the Import Policy dialog box, locate the XML policy file, and click Open.

  5. The AppLocker dialog box will notify you of how many rules were imported. Click OK.
