As a vRealize Operations admin, you can backup the content before upgrading, export all the outbound plugin configurations, and import it into a different vRealize Operations instance. You can also export the content from vRealize Operations on-prem to vRealize Operations Cloud.

Note: Any user with "Manage" Outbound Settings permission can export and import outbound plugin configurations.

Procedure

  1. Export an outbound setting.
    1. From the left menu, click Configure > Alerts, and in the right pane, click Outbound Settings.
    2. Select the outbound settings that you want to export and click the horizontal ellipses and select Export.
    3. Setup a new password to export data. The password should be at least 14 characters long.
    4. Click Export.
      The outbound setting data is exported in the .json format. A password is used to encrypt the data in the file using the AES algorithm with 128 bit key. Use the same password while importing this file.
  2. Import an outbound setting.
    Note: Before importing the outbound setting, ensure that you have exported the outbound plugin configurations.
    1. From the left menu, click Configure > Alerts, and in the right pane, click Outbound Settings.
    2. Click the horizontal ellipses and select Import.
    3. Click Browse to select the .json file and enter the password that you had set while exporting the content.
    4. If there is a conflict while importing the content, you can either overwrite the existing outbound settings or skip the import, which is the default.
    5. Click Import to import outbound settings to the destination setup.
      Note: While importing outbound settings on vRealize Operations Cloud, HTTP Proxy configurations will be excluded.
