Copying a Field Definition

You can streamline the process of configuring a new field by copying the definition of an existing field.

To copy a field definition:

  1. On the PPM Workbench shortcut bar, click Configuration > User Data.

    The User Data Workbench opens.

  2. Open an existing user data type or create a new user data type.

    The User Data Context window opens to the Fields tab.

  3. Click New.

    The Field: New window opens.

  4. Click Copy From.

    The Field Selection window opens.

  5. To search for the field to copy, complete one or more of the fields, and then click List.

    The Field Selection window lists the fields that match your search criteria.

    Note: You can query fields using several criteria, including the token name or field prompt. You can also perform more complex queries. For example, you can list all fields that reference a specific validation or all fields that a specific entity uses.

  6. Select the field to copy, and then click Copy.

    The Field: New window displays the attributes of the copied field.

  7. Make any necessary changes, and then click OK.
