Copying projects, folders, and assets

Copying projects, folders, and assets

You can copy projects, folders, and assets on the
Explore
page. You might want to copy an object to use as a template, or you might want to create a backup copy.
When you copy objects,
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
retains child elements in the following instances:
  • When you copy a project, the new project contains all of the folders and assets that were in the original project. Similarly, when you copy a folder, the new folder contains all of the assets that were in the original folder.
  • When you copy assets or a folder containing assets to another location, the assets retain their references to dependent objects.
    For example, a folder in the Customers project contains the m_cust and the mt_ca_cust assets. The mt_ca_cust asset requires the m_cust asset. If you copy the mt_ca_cust asset to a folder in the Customers_ca_upsell project, the mt_ca_cust asset in the Customers_ca_upsell project still references the m_cust asset in the Customers project.
When you copy an asset within a folder, you can keep both assets. When you copy an asset into a different folder that contains an asset with the same name, you can overwrite the asset in the folder or keep both. If you choose to keep both assets,
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
appends the new asset name with "Copy x" where x is the sequential copy number.
To avoid naming conflicts with duplicate assets, rename assets with a "Copy x" suffix.
When you copy an asset with a schedule, the schedule is removed from the copied asset.
Perform the following steps to copy an object:
  1. On the
    Explore
    page, navigate to the object that you want to copy.
  2. In the row that contains the object that you want to copy, click
    Actions
    and select
    Copy To
    .
    The Action menu for the highlighted asset includes the option to copy the asset.
  3. Browse to the new location and click
    Select
    .
