Overview

Example of the cloning button including on the Portal editor module.

Cloning can be used throughout the platform. This function allows you to clone an existing configuration, taking the attributes associated with the particular module/site and replicating them exactly. This is a quick way to create a new working setup on an existing customer domain. The features/functions available to clone are:

  • Portal
  • Sites
  • Service Tiers

Cloning is done by simply clicking the CLONE button.

NB every attribute is cloned during cloning and so some attributes may need to be retroactively removed to stop any anomalies occurring.

Examples

Cloning a portal: A user wants their three hotels to have the same login portal. You create a design that is to be used by all three sites. Instead of the potentially time consuming process of ensuring each portal has the same attributes, simply hit clone. There will be a new portal created with the same title as the first with '- clone' appended to the end. Upon cloning the portal, ensure you remove any tags that are associated with the original portal. You may have issues when trying to display a portal at the correct site if this is the case.
