Copying Object Type Fields

To copy an object type field:

  1. From the Workbench shortcut bar, select Deployment Mgmt > Object Types.

    The Object Type Workbench opens.

  2. Open an object type.

    The Object Type window opens to the Fields tab.

  3. Click New.

    The Field window opens.

  4. Click Copy From.

    The Field Selection window opens.

  5. Query for the field you want to copy.

    You can use several criteria, including token name or field prompt, to query fields. You can perform more complex queries. For example, you can list all fields that reference a given validation or that a specific entity uses. Because of the number of PPM fields, limit the list of fields by one or more of the query criteria.

  6. In the Field Selection window, select the desired field, and then click Copy.

    The Field Selection window closes and the definition of the selected field is copied to the New Field window.

  7. In the New Field window, modify the fields as required.

  8. Click OK.

    The new field is added to the Fields tab.

  9. Click OK.
