Copying an application allows you to keep all of the components of an application version, set a new application name, and change the application version into a standalone application.

Verify that your user account has the ROLE_APP_ARCHITECT application architect role assigned to it.

If you are not familiar with the process of adding components to an application blueprint, creating dependencies between components, or modifying services and scripts, see Create an Application.


On the vCloud Application Director title bar, click the drop-down menu and select Applications.


From the Applications page, point to the application card view.


Click the Copy button (Copy an application button) to copy the application.


Select an existing application version from the drop-down menu.


Set a new name for the application and add a description.

You might include the details about the configured properties and services, dependencies, node configuration, or custom tasks in the execution plan.


Click OK.

The new application appears on the Applications page.
