Copy List

The Copy List command allows you to create an exact copy of an existing list in your account.  It requires the following arguments: Command, Realm,  Password, List Name and Destination List Name.

api_web?r=myrealm&p=mypass&c=copylist&src_list=mylist&dst_list=mycopylist

The command is ‘copylist’, the realm is ‘myrealm’ and the password is ‘mypass’. The a new list named 'mycopylist' will be created with the same settings as the list named 'mylist'.

Example

Using all commands and arguments (please note the command is wrapped for display purposes only):

api_web?r=myrealm&p=mypass&c=copylist&src_list=mylist&dst_list=mycopylist

Successful results return, where ‘43’ is the ID of the new list:

SUCCESS: 43

Results

SUCCESS

The Copy List command success message returns the id of the new list.  The result format is:
