If you want to use some of the properties of an existing adaptive form to generate a new one, you can simply use the copy-paste functionality. In addition, you can paste the new adaptive form at the desired folder path. All metadata properties are replicated and the XFA and XSDs for XFA- and XSD-based adaptive forms are also copied.
The status and the review details are not copied. For example, if your adaptive form is published and then if you copy it, the pasted adaptive form is in unpublished state. Similarly, if a copied asset is under review, the pasted asset is not under the same review.
If you are in card view, go to selection mode by clicking the selection icon and click all the adaptive forms that you want to copy.
All selected assets must be adaptive forms because copy-paste functionality is supported only for adaptive forms, and all assets that are selected must be present in the same folder.
Clicking the copy action automatically exits the selection mode and makes the paste icon visible. Now go to the desired folder path and click the paste icon to paste the copied adaptive form.
If you are pasting in the same folder or another file with the same node name (with which it is stored in the CRX repository) exists in this target folder, 1 is appended to the suffix (for example, myaf becomes myaf1 and if myaf1 exists at the same location, myaf becomes myaf2. All other properties remain same as the original adaptive form.
After clicking the paste icon, it will again become hidden. At one time, you can only paste once. To again create a copy of same asset, copy it again.
The content of a pasted adaptive forms can be changed using the following approaches to make it different from the copied form:
You can change the metadata properties of the adaptive form for example, title and description. For more details about metadata properties and how they can be changed, see Managing Form Metadata
You can change the XFA/XSD used in adaptive forms. To know how these adaptive forms can be changed, see Managing form metadata
The pasted asset is different from the copied one. You can publish it as a new asset to make it available for end users. To know how to publish an asset, see Publishing and unpublishing forms
