    Posted 8 days ago
    Hi,
    Today if I duplicate a UserGroup, all users who are part of the existing UserGroup also become members of the new UserGroup.
    I want to Duplicate and existing UserGroup but don't want any members just yet.

    IS this possible?

    JOhn.

    ​I think not. There is just one "Duplicate" function and it duplicates everything, content included. The only exception is passwords in LOGIN objects.

    But duplicating it and then deleting the users should do it. Or do you want to do this automatically or otherwise repeatedly? In that case, maybe creating some sort of empty user group as a template might do?

    Br,
    Carsten

    That's what I thought.
    No, this is a once off thing. I have a User group with lots of lines in the Authorization section.
    I want to Duplicate this and make a minor change for some users but not all....

    You can export as XML, rename the object within the XML and import it again. By making use of WorkflowCommander, Java API or the REST Interface you might automate this as well for many objects.

    I'm not see an "Export/Import" option for UserGroups and I also can't add to Transport case, at least in AWI.

    I can see it with V12.2

    I don't see it in V 12.1 but I was able to use transport case on old Java UI so I'm good. thanks...

    ​Much export functionality was only added with 12.2.

    12.1 probably doesn't have it. It's by design.
