Is it possible to download an ISO image from Lifecycle Manager in vCenter?

Good afternoon, 

Is there a way to download an ISO image from within Lifecycle Manager in vCenter 7.0.3? I can download the image from the website and import it, but the process would be faster and easier to just download it from Lifecycle Manager. I found zero help from Google, and I can't see how to do it from LM. 

Thanks, 

Joe B

I recently had to do this and the way I accomplished this was to create a dummy vSphere Cluster and configure vLCM with the desired image. Then click on the vSphere Cluster and select Updates and click on the "..." to get option to export to ISO or an offline-bundle

That's an interesting approach. Did you retain the dummy cluster or do you simply clean that up and keep a config file on-hand to recreate if/when you run into that again?
