You can export a super metric from one vRealize Operations Manager instance and import it to another vRealize Operations Manager 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 Manager returns a brief error message and writes detailed information to the log file.
