Workspace administrators can create a copy of a model in the same workspace. For example, to use as a basis for a new model. 

When you copy a model, the copied model does not retain the original model's history. If any import files are present in the copied model, these ae not copied across to the new model and must be imported again, if required. If you copy a production model, we recommend you follow the best practices in Application Lifecycle Management.

To copy a model:

  1. In the Models tab of the Model Management dialog, select the model that you want to copy.
  2. Select Copy.
  3. Enter a name for the new model in the Model Name field.
  4. Select Save.
    The copied model opens.
