Duplicating a Project

Duplicate a project to create an exact copy of the project, for example to create a base line of the project. You must log in as an administrator to duplicate projects in a Silk Test Workbench database.

  1. Choose Tools > Administration. Or, you can click Administration in the Tasks pane of the Start Screen. The Administration dialog box opens.
  2. Click the Projects tab.
  3. Choose the project you want to duplicate, and then click Duplicate. The Duplicate Project dialog box appears.
  4. Specify a name for the project duplicate in the New name field.
  5. Optional: Check the Copy all versions of assets check box. By default, this check box is unchecked and only the active version of each asset in the original project is copied.
  6. If the project references one or more other projects, select an action from the Action column of the referenced project to specify what to do with the project.
    • To retain the reference from the project duplicate to the referenced project, select Retain reference. This is the default setting.
    • To duplicate the referenced project and to reference the duplicated project from the duplicated root project select Duplicate Project in the Action column. You can change the name for the duplicated project in the New name column.
    • To duplicate a child referenced project, you also have to duplicate the parent project. For example, if you are duplicating project A that references project B, and project B references project C, you have to duplicate project B in order to duplicate project C.
  7. Click OK.
    Note: This button is disabled while there are errors with referenced projects or duplicate project names.
Note: Results in the original project are not copied.
