OCS DataView "Save as" function
If there is a dataview existing, which might need to be altered or edited using the UI, but the original dataview should remain (i.e., because of dependency to existing applications accessing the dataview), it should be able to save the data view under a new Id/Name in order to preserve the original one. Specifically if the initial creation of the dataview was very time consuming that would be rather helpful.
We have added a “duplicate” function in the OCS Portal so that you can easily copy an existing data view, providing a new Id/Name on creation. We hope this helps reduce efforts in building off of other data views, and can enable templatizing of common configurations.
To duplicate a data view, navigate to the Data Views list page, click on the data view you wish to duplicate, and access the “Duplicate” option in the context menu on the right (in the data view overview pane).
