Clone a version (branch a documentation set)
You clone a version when you want to use the content of a version as a starting point for the next version.
When you clone an existing version, the DITA CMS automatically branches all the maps in that version. For each existing map, it creates a new version of the map with the same content as the source version.
Note: The cloned objects keep the same assignments as the existing version. They are not assigned to the person who cloned the version.
To clone a version:
In the Dynamic Release
Management view, right-click the version that you want to clone
and select Clone Version.
The Clone Version dialog box is displayed. The following diagram shows the Clone Version dialog for a product.
- In the Product or Library field, enter the product or library in which to clone the version.
- In the Release field, enter the release in which to clone the version.
- Give the version name and a description.
The new version is created. All the maps that were in the source version are branched in the new version.
