Speedy #em12c template export

Wither you use a single OEM and migrating to a new OEM or have multiple OEMs, the need to move templates between environments will arise.  I had this exact problem come up recently at a customer site between an OEM 11g and OEM 12c.  In order to move the templates, I needed to export the multiple monitoring templates using EMCLI.  The command that I used to do individual exports was the following:

./emcli export_template -name="<template name>" -target_type="<target_type>" -output_file="/tmp/<template name>.xml"

If you have only one template to move, the EMCLI command above will work.  If you have more than one template to move, the easiest thing to do is to have the EMCLI command run in a script.  This is the beauty of EMCLI; the ability to interact with OEM at the command line and use it in scripts for repeated executions.  Below is a script that I wrote to export templates based on target_types.
Note: If you need to identify the target_types that are supported by OEM, they can be found in SYSMAN.EM_TARGET_TYPES in the repository.

 print "<target_type> = target type for template being exported\n";
 print "refer to sysman.em_target_types in repository for more info.";
 print "\n";
 exit;
}
system($oem_home_bin.'/emcli login -username=<userid> -password=<password>');
system($oem_home_bin.'/emcli sync');
@buf = `$oem_home_bin/emcli list_templates`;
foreach (@buf)
{
 @columns = split (/ {2,}/, $_);
 if ($columns[2] eq $target_type )
 {
 my $cmd = 'emcli export_template -name="'.$columns[0].'" -target_type="'.$columns[2].'" -output_file="/tmp/'.$columns[0].'.xml"';
 system($oem_home_bin.'/'.$cmd);
 print "Finished export of: $columns[0] template\n";
 }
}
system($oem_home_bin.'/emcli logout');
