In the Software Products UI of TPM there is not any quick way to duplicate or copy one Software Product to another. The following shortcut could be used.
- Extract the appropriate xml file from the tcdriver. The tcdriver can be unzipped by a unzip tool and look inside the xml folder that is generated.
- Remove everything from the xml file except the software module that is to be duplicated.
- Change the 'software-module' name to something new in the xml file.
- import the xml file using the xml import command.
As an example I give below the "Apache Web Server" Software product, which is packaged by default with the apache.tcdriver automation package, in the xml file named apache_sample.xml.
Change the highlighted text in this xml file to any different and unique name and import the xml file and you will see a new Software Product! Its that simple!
