Can anyone help me to know the difference between Copy and Duplicate jobs in repository.
The "Copy" option in Repository tree view is used to copy a Job of an SVN or Git managed project to a branch in essence.(This feature will be available in talend subscription solution).
For more information, please have a look at online document about:TalendHelpCenter:How to copy a Job to a branch
If you want to create a Job based on an existing Job, please right-click the Job named and select Duplicate from the contextual menu.
Let us know if it is OK with you.
So the if u copy a job or duplicate it, there will be no difference to the new jobs right, so y do we need a duplicate option(just copy can do right), is there any specific reason?
Copy: If we want to copy a job into new branch/Folder (using SVN/GIT as a managed project (Copy to Branch option)).
Duplicate: If we want to create a same copy of existing job.
Basically at design level or function point of view, there is no difference between these.
From COPY, you can copy a job to different folder of your project. Right click on job and paste it to another folder (By default naming convention: JobName_copy)
From DUPLICATE, you can make a copy of job within the same folder of your project. Right click on job and click on "duplicate", it will immediately create a same copy of your existing job within same folder (By Default naming convention: copy_of_JobName)
Hope it helps.
