Manage Configuration Backups

The running configuration on the firewall comprises all settings you have committed and that are therefore active, such as policy rules that currently block or allow various types of traffic in your network. The candidate configuration is a copy of the running configuration plus any inactive changes that you made after the last commit. Saving backup versions of the running or candidate configuration enables you to later restore those versions. For example, if a commit validation shows that the current candidate configuration has more errors than you want to fix, you can restore a previous candidate configuration. You can also revert to the current running configuration without saving a backup first. If you need to export specific parts of the configuration for internal review or audit, you can Export Configuration Table Data.
See Commit, Validate, and Preview Firewall Configuration Changes for details about commit operations.
