Copying requests

To create a request that is similar to an existing one, you can copy that existing request. You can make the copy when the request is in any state, including before or after you submit a request. You can then edit the copied request as needed.

About this task

To copy a request or to edit a copied request, you must have the appropriate security permission.

  2. Click Copy (Two pages image).
