Exporting Cisco Prime Infrastructure Maps
To obtain maps for Cisco CMX, you have to export maps from Cisco Prime Infrastructure.
Log in to Cisco Prime Infrastructure. Choose Site Maps from the Maps menu. Choose Export Maps and click Go.
Select the map to be exported and click Export.
The selected map is downloaded to a compressed tar file named ImportExport_xxxx .tar.gz, for example, ImportExport_4575dcc9014d3d88.tar.gz, in your browser’s download directory.
Copying the Exported Maps
Use Secure Copy Protocol (SCP) to copy the exported maps to a directory of a server accessible by Cisco CMX.
You can import maps from Cisco Prime Infrastructure into Cisco CMX using either GUI or CLI.
When you import maps, they are appended to the existing ones in Cisco CMX. When Cisco CMX finds that a campus whose name already exists in Cisco CMX has a different AesUID in the import map file, Cisco CMX performs a map sync operation under this campus if the override option is set to Yes.
To import maps using CLI, perform one of the following tasks:
• Import all the maps directly from Cisco Prime Infrastructure using the cmxctl config importmap or
the cmxctl config import command.
• Import the exported maps into Cisco CMX using the cmxctl config maps import --type FILE --path
<path to .tar.gz file> command.

Command Reference Guide, Release 10.2, at: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/mse/10-2/cmx_command/guide/cmxcli10.html
To import maps using the GUI, perform the following tasks:
- 1 Log in to Cisco Mobile Connected Experiences (Cisco CMX).
- 2 Click SYSTEM Dashboard.
- 3 Click the Gear icon at the top-right corner of the window.
- 4 Click Controllers and Maps Setup Import.
Cisco CMX 10.2 provides an Override Maps option (SYSTEM > SETTINGS). By default, this option is enabled. When you enable this option, the Cisco CMX maps will be replaced with the maps defined in the file that you import.
