Creating a New App by Duplicating an Existing App (Copying an App)
You can create a new app by duplicating an existing app.
This allows you to save the effort required for configuring the App Settings from scratch, as the new app inherits the Form and Views settings of the original app.
To create a new app by duplicating an app, you need the management permission for the app. For details on how to configure the app management permission, refer to the following page:
Configuring Permissions for App
Settings That Are Not Migrated to the New App
When you duplicate an existing app to create a new app, the new app does not inherit the following settings:
- App Code
- API Token
- Settings that are applied to plug-ins in use
However, Enabled/Disabled status is inherited.
- Notes for app administrators
However, they are migrated to the new app if the "Include the content of this notes in app template or duplicated app" option is selected on the edit screen for the notes for app administrators.
For details, refer to the "Setting up Notes for App Administrators" page.
- App record data
When you create a new app by duplicating an app, no record is registered to the new app.
If you want the new app to inherit the records of the original app, export the data of the original app to a file and import the file into the new app.
For details, refer to the "Exporting Data to a File" page and the "Creating/Updating Records in Bulk: Importing a File" page.
On the top page of Kintone, click the add button located at the right of Apps.
Click "Create from Existing App".
Click Duplicate This App for the app that you want to duplicate.
The app is duplicated. You are directed to the app settings screen of the new app.
You can modify the form setting here.
Click Activate App.
You have successfully created a new app by duplicating an app.
