Saving a service as another service

You can save an existing service as another service.

About this task

Note: When you save a service containing a Sub Service Name as another service, that Sub Service Name is copied over with an appended digit to differentiate it from the original Sub Service Name. For example, if you save a service named Service1 containing a Sub Service Name R1 as another service named Service2, the original Sub Service Name is copied over as R1_0.
