You might need to export an item from a content library to your local system.

Required privilege: Content library. Download files on the library.

Verify you have the Client Integration Plug-in installed on the system.


In the vSphere Web Client navigator, select vCenter Inventory Lists > Content Libraries.


Select a content library and click the Related Objects tab.


Select the type of file you want to export.

From the Templates tab, right-click a template from the library, and select Export Item.

From the Other Types tab, right-click a file from the library that is not a template, and select Export Item.

The Export Library Item dialog box opens.


Browse to a destination folder where you want to save the item, and click OK.

A folder with the same name as the item is created in the destination folder on your local computer to store the item contents.
