If you plan to upgrade vRealize Operations Manager to version 6.7 or later, first check the output content of your existing vRealize Operations Manager deployment.

vRealize Operations Manager 6.7 or later enables different metrics than in earlier versions. Before upgrading, you use the Pre-Upgrade Assessment Tool to scan your vRealize Operations Manager output content for discontinued or disabled metrics.


Satisfy the following conditions before performing any tasks for this use case.

  • Use POST /lcm/api/v1/login to log in to vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager.

  • Verify that you have a valid authentication token that matches your login credentials. See Request an Authentication Token.


  1. Request an assessment check for a vRealize Operations Manager deployment in your vRealize Suite environment.
    curl -X POST "https://LCM-HostName/lcm/api/v1/action/assessment/product" \
      -H "accept: application/json" \
      -H "x-xenon-auth-token: $token" \
      -H "content-type: application/json" \
      -d "{ 
        "environmentId": "<Environment-ID>",  
        "requestId": "<request-ID>"
    Table 1. Input Parameters for Assessment Request




    Environment ID is in the response to the request for a list of all environments managed by vRealize Suite. See List All Products in an Environment


    ID received from the response of the call POST /action/upgrade/product. See Create Product Upgrade Request.

  2. Examine the response.

    The output includes:

    • id: Assessment Check Request ID

    • status: Status of the request

  3. Monitor the status of the request with the Assessment Check Request ID.
    curl -X GET "https://LCM-HostName/lcm/api/v1/request/status/{Assessment-Check-Request-ID}" \
      -H "accept: application/json" \
      -H "x-xenon-auth-token: $token" \
      -H "content-type: application/json" 
  4. Once the assessment check reaches COMPLETED status, request the assessment report.
    curl -X GET "https://LCM-HostName/lcm/api/request/{requestId}" \
      -H "accept: application/json" \
      -H "x-xenon-auth-token: $token" \
      -H "content-type: application/json" 

    Where the requestId is from the response of the call POST /action/upgrade/product. See Create Product Upgrade Request.

  5. Examine the response to obtain the value for resultText under the resultData property. The value for resultText is the absolute path to the generated report in the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager appliance.

    The following snippet is from an example response.

      "requestDataType": "com.vmware.vrealize.lcm.nxui.document.GuiRequest",

What to do next

Use the value for resultText to view the assessment report from the appliance console. To obtain the same report from a web browser, replace /data/ with https://LCM-hostname:4443/ in the URL. To access the web link, you must provide UI administrator credentials.

The assessment report identifies the vRealize Operations Manager output content such as dashboards, alerts, and reports that will be affected by the upgrade.
