You can export a super metric from one vRealize Operations Cloud instance and import it to another vRealize Operations Cloud instance. For example, after developing a super metric in a test environment, you can export it from the test environment and import it use in a production environment.

If the super metric to import contains a reference to an object that does not exist in the target instance, the import fails. vRealize Operations Cloud returns a brief error message and writes detailed information to the log file.

Procedure

  1. Export a super metric.
    1. From the left menu, select Configure and then click Super Metrics.
    2. Select the super metric to export, click horizontal ellipsis and then click Export.
      vRealize Operations Cloud creates a super metric file, for example, SuperMetric.json.
    3. Download the super metric file to your computer.
  2. Import a super metric.
    1. From the left menu, select Configure and then click Super Metrics.
    2. Click the horizontal ellipsis and then click Import.
    3. (Optional). If the target instance has a super metric with the same name as the super metric you are importing, you can either overwrite the existing super metric or skip the import, which is the default.
