Importing instances requires creating objects in the XML file. Two ServiceSubscriber instances, called Cust1 and Cust2, are created in the XML file, for example:

 <object class="ServiceSubscriber" name="Cust1" />
 <object class="ServiceSubscriber" name="Cust2" />

By default, the method for an object element is "update," so it is unnecessary to specify it. If the object does not exist, then the update method automatically adds it to the repository. Map of imported Service Subscribers illustrates a Services Map and topology browser after importing these Service Subscribers.
