Question:

Can dashboards be exported and imported between different versions of UMP?

Answer:

Due to architecture changes between different versions of UMP, the dashboards will not work between the two instances. In the past, customers have tried exporting dashboards between two different UMP versions before consulting Support. Some of the dashboards worked fine and many dashboards were missing key elements. This is the reason why this is not recommended.

Additional Information:

As a workaround, a test environment that matches the older UIM/UMP environment can be set up. The dashboards can be exported from the existing older UMP instance over to the test environment. The test environment can then be upgraded to the newer UIM/UMP environment. Lastly, the dashboards can then be exported from the upgraded test environment and imported over to the newer UIM/UMP environment.
