Is it possible to share alert rules from "Used Rules"?

I’ve implemented some alerts by using Vendor Rules (via the “Use” action) and customizing them. But there is no action to share or change ownership of rules in the “Used Rules” view. Is it generally impossible to share those rules?  

Maybe I don’t quite understand the purpose of “Used Rules”, shouldn’t the vendor rule by under “My Rules” once it has been customized?

Yes, you can share Alert Rules with User Groups. You need to Clone the Vendor Rule (and give it a new name), so it will be placed under My Rules. From there, you can Share the Rule with a User Group.

However, this is a fairly new feature (AFAIK). I tested it on 6.12.1, and it works as I described above.
