Exporting and importing views

In the TrueSight console, you can export an out-of-the-box view or a custom view as a package file. The package file can then be imported and installed in the product. The file extension for the package file is .viewpkg

With this feature, you can complete the following use cases:

  • Create a copy of a view: Export an out-of-the-box view, import it with a new name, modify its configuration, and save it as a new view. 
  • Migrate a view: Create a custom view in the development or test environment and after confirming that the results are accurate, import it in the production environment.
  • Share a view: Import a custom view that is created in one environment into a different destination environment.
