To use a view in another vRealize Operations Manager, 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 vRealize Operations Manager administrator can tell you which actions you can perform.


  1. In the menu, click Dashboards, and then in the left pane click Views.
  2. Click the gear icon and select Export View.
  3. In the list of views, navigate to and click the Virtual Machines Distribution view .
  4. Select a location on your local system to save the XML file and click Save.
