When you import data, you select a source, select the solutions you want from that source, and start the import.

For data import, you identify a source and provide connection credentials. vRealize Operations Manager displays the solutions found on the source, and you can import the data collected by some or all of those solutions.

On the left, select Administration > Solutions. On the right, select the Import Data tab, and click Import Data.

The wizard includes pages where you select import sources, their solutions, and start the import.
