Best way to clone a project

I have a working SOAPUI project; let's call it project-A.   There are changes in the far-end server which require extensive changes in the soap requests.  

I like to clone project-A, calls it project-A-new.  Project-A-new will contains all the  API in project-A so I can make the changes and test in project-A-new.

I noticed that when I right-clicked the project-A, there is no option to clone the project.  

 

I tried.  I imported project-A again and renamed it to project-A-new.  When I saved it, project-A would change to project-A-new as well.  I ended up with 2 project-A-new.   This is not what I want.

 

What is the best way to clone the whole project?

Re: Best way to clone a project

Hey @Mis3,

The way i do this is to "save as" 'project A', calling it 'project A new'.

I then "save as" 'project A' again, but this time i save as the original filename as 'project A' (so i'm essentialluly renaming/overwriting 'project A' again.)

I then import project, and import the 'project A new' file.

The 'project A new' appears in my project list and i then rename the project to 'project A new'.

Thats it. I then have 2 duplicate projects in my navigator frame. One entitled 'project A' and one entitled 'project A new'

Cheers,

Rich

If  project A new is the proJect name, why rename it?

 

Also, do I perform all these steps in SOAPUI interface?  (Not in SOAPUI-Projects folder in my laptop)?
