To use views from other vRealize Operations Manager environments, you import a content definition XML file.

Before you begin

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

Procedure

  1. In the left pane of vRealize Operations Manager, click the Content icon and click Views.
  2. Select All Actions > Import view.
  3. Browse to select the Virtual Machines Distribution content definition XML file and click Import.

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

    Note:

    The imported view overwrites if a view with the same name exists. All report templates that use the existing view are updated with the imported view.
