We were thinking in the past that we've been able to move management elements (metric groupings, alerts, etc.) between environments (test to prod or vice versa) by just dragging and dropping them from one workstation to the other workstation. This doesn't appear to work for me. We have a 9.5.0 environment.
Has anyone been able to do this? Am I missing something easy. Is there a better way to mass export a bunch of metric groupings, alerts, etc. and then import them into another environment? I was thinking I could also copy all the metrics I want into a new module and then copy that module's jar file over to the other environment's module directory. After that then I could move the individual elements to other management modules.
I would highly recommend you get familiar with regular expressions and use them in your Management Modules.
Not using them is probably the one problem most people have when they develop them in a lower/test environment and try to move them.
Yep. Especially on the test side if you are using management module agent expressions on the test side for flipping between logical environments. We have one test mom for a bunch of logical test environments so that option is highly useful.
Looking at the documentation. I see a good section on moving management modules but not moving the elements.
Create and Work With Management Modules - CA Application Performance Management - 10.3 - CA Technologies Documentation

I will mark as answered since I see no followup questions. In addition, I will also ask my group to respond further.Thanks
You have to do what Hiko suggested or move the entire MM. A bulk move of elements is not possible at this time.
Thanks, Hiko and Hallett.
