Copy Template

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

api_web?r=myrealm&p=mypass&c=copytemplate&template_name=mytemplate&dst_template_name=mycopytemplate

The command is ‘copytemplate’, the realm is ‘myrealm’ and the password is ‘mypass’. The a new template named 'mycopytemplate' will be created with the same settings as the template named 'mytemplate'.

Example

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

api_web?r=myrealm&p=mypass&c=copytemplate&template_name=mytemplate&dst_template_name=mycopytemplate

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

SUCCESS: 43

Results

SUCCESS

The Copy Template command success message returns the id of the new template.  The result format is:
