Pinned topic How to create/import Duplicate process with different name in process cente

‏2013-02-04T19:14:12Z |
In our current 7.5 environment we have a process X running, want to make a copy of X with name Y.
I tried exporting the X snapshot and tried reimporting it. Its not letting me.

Suggest me the best possible way.
Thanks
Nagendra

    Hi,
    No problem.

    1. Export the snapshot.
    2. Extract it or use some utility for archiving files editing. I use FAR.
    3. Find META-INF/package.xml
    4. Change
    <target>
    <project id="2066.8633c1ef-2935-46e3-93d0-9311c9b80ac2" name="description="" shortName="MYAPP" isToolkit="false" isHidden="false" isSystem="false"/>
    <branch id="2063.0e15cac2-b3e9-4b58-8dbf-4950eb07b603" name="Main" acronym="Main" description=""/>
    <snapshot id="2064.99ec3b07-e908-4291-afeb-cb2da187c3e1" name="1.3" acronym="1.3" originalCreationDate="" description=""/>
    </target>

    5. Save or archive the archiv.
    6. Import it.

    It's GUID format.
    Just change one number in them.
    I think the possibility of generating the same GUID is rather weak.

    A much easier way would be to click on the drop down next to the snapshot in the Process Center and simply select the "clone" option….

    Yes, Andrew,
    but we do not use easy ways. :)

    Actually, I think I have heard rumors of some problems with "clone" but perhaps that was just drug induced hallucinations…..

    I have not seen any issues with clone and I would recommend that solution over modifying the manifest XML since it's supported.
