Moving Inspectors between Agents

Overview

There are times when it may be necessary to move deployed Inspectors from one Agent to another, such as retiring a server that is running an On-Premises Agent, or deploying a Self-Hosted Agent to support serverless Environments.

Deleting an Inspector deletes all of its historical data in Liongard.
