Import a snapshot

You can import a snapshot from your local file system into Lifecycle Management.


  1. Click Import to import a snapshot.
  2. Select a snapshot from your local file system.
    Note: You must choose a file with the GZ file type (.gz).
  3. If a snapshot exists in your source environment with the same name as the file that you are importing, choose one of the following options:
    1. Import and keep both snapshots by renaming the snapshot that is being imported.
      The existing snapshot remains unchanged and both snapshots appear in the snapshot list.
    2. Import and replace the existing snapshot.
      The existing snapshot is deleted. The imported snapshot appears in the snapshot list.
    3. Cancel your import.
      The existing snapshot remains unchanged.
