This section provides instructions for cloning the new branch site for use as a partial template for adding more branch sites.
Cloning a site streamlines the process of adding and configuring additional branch nodes. When a site is cloned, the entire set of configuration settings for the site are copied and displayed in a single form page. You can then modify the settings according to the requirements of the new site. Some of the original settings can be retained, where applicable. However, most of the settings must be unique for each site.
To clone a site, do the following:
In the Sites tree (middle pane) of the Configuration Editor, click + to the left of the branch site you want to duplicate.
This opens that site branch in the Sites tree, and reveals the Clone button (double page icon) and Delete button (trashcan icon).
2. Click the Clone icon to the right of the branch site name in the tree.
This opens the Clone Site configuration page.
3. Enter the configuration parameter settings for the new site.
A pink field with an Audit Alert icon (red dot) indicates a required parameter setting that must have a value different than the setting for the original cloned site. In most cases, this value must be unique.
4. Resolve any Audit Alerts.
To diagnose an error, roll your cursor over the Audit Alert icon (red dot or goldenrod delta) to reveal bubble help for that specific alert.
5. Click Clone (far right corner) to create the new site and add it to the Sites table.
6. (Optional.) Save your changes to the configuration.
Repeat the steps up to this point for each branch site you want to add.
After you have finished adding all of the sites, the next step is to check the configuration for Audit Alerts, and make corrections or additions as needed.
