Apps can be copied from the Live Environment and added to the Development Environment, as well as vice versa. For example, you may want to copy particular Apps from the Live Environment and add them to the Development Environment where you can modify them without taking down from the Marketplace. Moreover, you are also able to copy your entire Marketplace with all Apps, Reviews, Users, etc. from the Live Environment and add it to the Development Environment for further modifications and adjustments without effecting the live Marketplace.
To copy one or multiple Apps, first, select the Environment from which you want to copy the Apps. To do so, click on the corresponding “Environment” button in the top left corner of the screen and then select the preferred option from the list.
Next, go to “Apps” from the main navigation menu to open the list of all available Apps. Alternatively, scroll down to the “Apps” section on the main “Dashboard” page.
Use the search to find Apps by name. To do so, input the name of the App(s) you want to find into the search field.
After opening the App that you want to copy, click on the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen and then select “Copy” from the list.
After that, select the Environment into which you want to copy the App and then click on the “Copy” button respectively.
Once the App is successfully copied, the corresponding notification will indicate so at the top of the App Details screen.
To view the copied App in another Environment, first, switch the Environments and then locate the copied App either on the main “Dashboard” page or on the main “Apps” page.
After switching the Environments, use the search on the main “Apps” page to find Apps by name. To do so, input the name of the App you want to find into the search field.
To copy the App from the Development Environment, repeat the same copying process as described above for the Live Environment.
Copying Entire Marketplace
You can also copy your entire Marketplace from the Live Environment and paste it into the Development Environment for further modifications. To do so, first, open the Live Environment, then go to “Settings” in the navigation menu and after that select “Marketplace” from the list.
On the “Settings” page, click on the “Copy” button in the “Copy to development” field.
After that, check the boxes next to the items that you want to copy from the Marketplace. Click on the “Save” button to finish copying the Marketplace. NOTE: By copying particular items (Users, Developers, etc.) from the Marketplace in the Live Environment you erase and overwrite all these items in the Development Environment.
Once the Marketplace is successfully copied, the corresponding notification will indicate so at the top of the screen.
Then, go to the Development Environment where you can view and manage all items copied from the Marketplace in the Live Environment.
