Problem

kintone has a basic function that is copy another app and create a new app https://jp.cybozu.help/ja/k/user/app_recycle However, with this function can only copy the frame and content as the data saved in the app can not be copied. In support of this inherent function, kintone has provided us with the "Copy Data" plugin to perform data copy as well as app attachments.

How to use Plugin

First, we go to setting

Click New, check plugin Copy data

In the settings plugin of the original app, specify the app will copy to perform data copy Click Copy Then select OK to copy the data. When the data is successfully copied, the message will be displayed On the contrary if failure: We have the data of the original app This is the result after successfully copying the data to the new app

Notes

  1. Copy data plugin will follow the rules
    • App wants to copy the same space with the original app
    • Compare the original app and app copy fields, and only copy the data of matching fields
    • Comparing the original app and app copy fields, if no matching field is present, displays the errror message
  2. We do not guarantee this sample to run.
  3. We do not provide any technical support for this sample Plug-in.
