I have several backup policies using several SLPs. How can I find all the backup policies that are using an SLP without opening each backup policy to check?

You can list output of all policies and save to a text file, then search the text file for this:
'Residence is Storage Lifecycle Policy'

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bppllist -allpolicies -U >/tmp/policies.txt

If SLP is defined in policy Attributes, the entry will look like this:
Residence is Storage Lifecycle Policy:    yes

If SLP is defined in policy Schedule, the entry will look like this:
Residence is Storage Lifecycle Policy:    1

You can also extract this details through Activity Monitor (Java Console) as well or you can follow what @Marianne suggested.

Log on to Java Console => NetBackup Management => Policies

1. If SLP is defined in policies : Select Summary of All Policies -> "Storage" Column will show you the SLP's corresponding to your policy. Go to File -> Export - if you want to export the details to file or you can try just copying from console

2. If SLP is defined in Schedule : Expand Summary of All Policies -> Select Schedules -> "Storage" column will show your SLP's. Export to file or copy as explained in point 1
