There is a data template feature that you can find in LCS after you have configured system diagnostics on the environment. This will give you the ability to control an export from LCS based on the entities you configure. This could be used for example to export a set of data out of a template environment that you can move into another environment for example test or use as a basis for a new installation.
The data template supersedes the configuration manager because you can use the processing group that you define and therefore control the sequence of how the entities are executed.
Here is a quick overview or exporting with the template.
