Issue/Introduction

I would like to upgrade our UIM environment 8.51 SP1 to DX IM 9.0.2 and then to 9.2.0.
I am building a test environment to replicate my production UIM core (SQLDB, Prim, Sec, UMP) environment.
I would like to import my production configuration viz. mcs templates, performance reports, dashboards to my test environment to replicate our production.
Could you please help me with the documents relevant to the upgrade or migration?

 

Environment
