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

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 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.
