To use a view in another VMware Aria Operations instance, you export a content definition XML file.

If the exported view contains custom created metrics, such as what-if, supermetrics, or custom adapter metrics, you must recreate them in the new environment.


Verify that you have the necessary access rights to perform this task. Your VMware Aria Operations administrator can tell you which actions you can perform.


  1. From the left menu, click Visualize > Views.
  2. From the Views panel, click Manage.
  3. Select a view and click Export from the vertical ellipsis next to the selected view.
