Provide tool to migrate the entire SMAX Service Catalog from one SMAX environment/tenant to another

Provide tool to migrate the entire SMAX Service Catalog from one SMAX environment/tenant to another

The catalog - categories, service definitions, as well as basic information in offerings can be exported and imported using csv.

However the associated complex data for offerings e.g.user options, business rules, task plans need to be migrated manually. 

We have lots of (complex) catalog items which need to be created and tested preferrably in non production environments before going into Production. A tool with the ability to migrate select complete (complex) catalog offerings from one tenant to another would be invaluable (reducing typo risks, enabling re-use across MSP tenants etc).

Could be useful to have a full or partial migration of the service catalog : be able to select the offering list for generating the package to migrate.

Of course that would be wonderful.

The fact that it is in CSV format suggests that the files can be edited before import.

In order to not duplicate this suggestion, is it possible to consider this linked add-on to the initial suggestion:  we can create a catalog from scratch with this csv files ?
