In addition to creating a new package, you can also copy an existing package in the Package Catalog. Copying packages gives you the same content, but it contains a different global identifier. This allows you to create a new package based on the content of an existing package.
Verify that you have a package created with content. Otherwise, follow Creating Feature Packages and Adding Content to Packages to create a package with content.
Right-click the package in the package catalog you want to copy, then click.
Use the following information to create a copy of the package:
Name: Change the name of the package, if desired.
Short Name: Change the unique short name for the package. This name must be unique in the Identity Vault.
Version: Specify the package version you want to use. By default, the package version is set to 0.0.1.
Description: Specify a description for the package.
Type: This field cannot change. The package type is determined when you create a package, not when you copy a package.
Base Package: If you want to use the copied package as a base package, select this option. If you leave this option cleared, Designer creates the copied package as a feature package.
Category: Change the package category for this package, if desired.
Group: Change the package group for this package, if desired.
Use the following information to define the package constraints:
IDM Compatibility: Define the minimum and maximum versions of Identity Manager that the package supports.
Application Compatibility: Define the minimum and maximum versions of the managed application that the package supports, if applicable.
Driver Type: Select the drivers that the package supports, if applicable.
Use the following information to define the vendor of the package:
Vendor Name: Specify the vendor name. If this package is for internal consumption, specify the name of your company.
Vendor Address: Specify the address for the vendor or your company.
Vendor URL: Specify the URL of the vendor or your company.
Vendor eMail: Specify an e-mail for the vendor or your company.
Contact Name: If there is a specific contact person for this package, specify their name.
Contact eMail: If there is a specific e-mail address for the contact person, specify it in this field.
Review the summary of the new package version, then click.
The copy of the package is created in the package catalog under the specified category and group. You can now build and release your package.
NOTE:When users install the copied package, the package uses the language used by Designer when the package was copied.
