There are lots of reasons to want to export and import blueprints from one vRA instance to another. My current motives are to move blueprints from my vRA 7.2 environment to my newly deployed vRA 7.3 environment. In vRA 7.3 their is a great new free feature available, the Code Stream Management Pack for IT Devops that is free. However if you are running a pre vRA 7.3 environment you may want to get that content from that environment backed up so you can use it in another instance. Cloud Client is a great option.
vRealize CloudClient 4.3
- Support for the vRealize Automation 7.2 capability to assign all users of a business group to an entitlement or to delete an inactive entitlement.
- The new vra catalogitem service unassign command enables you to remove a service from a catalog item.
- CloudClient’s truststore password can now be set by the user. As a result of this update, users may be prompted to accept certificates that were previously accepted in earlier versions of CloudClient.
- CloudClient 4.3 runs on Java version 1.8. Java 1.7 is no longer supported.
