You can uninstall content packs. Uninstalling contact packs removes custom dashboards, saved queries, alerts, and extracted fields.

Content packs are saved as vCenter VMware Aria Operations for Logs Content Pack (VLCP) files.

Uninstalling a content pack makes it permanently unavailable for all users. Make a backup by exporting the content pack as a VLCP file first. See Export a Content Pack.


Verify that you are logged into the VMware Aria Operations for Logs web user interface as a Super Admin user, or a user associated with a role that has the relevant permissions.

The URL format of the web user interface is https://operations_for_logs-host, where operations_for_logs-host is the IP address or host name of the VMware Aria Operations for Logs virtual appliance.
