    Article summary

    As long as you work in the same ControlUp organization, you can share some settings.

    In general there are public configurations which are shared via the cloud servers or LDS server (on-premises mode), such as stress settings, trigger settings, agent settings and more.

    Private configurations, such as: columns order, width and height can be shared manually.

    Private configurations are saved in two local xml files, both files are located under: %AppData%\Roaming\ControlUp\Configuration\

    Please note that by copying these files to your colleagues machine, credentials are not shared, they are encrypted.

    First file - CommonPrivateConfiguration.xml
