Figure 3-13 Applications to Copy
You can copy and paste the following within the same editor or to another editor:
Applications, including custom applications
Select an application or driver icon.
Press, then .
The copy and paste operations are also accessible from the Clipboard context menu. (Currently, they aren’t accessible from the main menus.)
When you copy an application in the same editor, Designer copies all of the application’s attributes, and copies all subelements. Therefore, all drivers that the application is connected to are copied, and all policies that the drivers contain are also copied. The new application defaults to connect to the same driver sets that the previous application connected to.
To copy an application to a different driver set (in the same editor or in another editor):
Select the application.
Select the target driver set that the application will connect to.
If you copy and paste an application without selecting a target driver set, Designer makes a copy and connects it to the current driver set.
You can select multiple applications and then copy and paste them.
Figure 3-14 Driver Sets
You can copy and paste driver sets within the same Identity Vault or to another Identity Vault in the same editor or in another editor.
Select a driver set.
Press, then .
When you copy a driver set in the same editor, Designer copies all of the attributes of the driver set, including the following:
All drivers that the driver set is connected to
All policies that the drivers contain
All target applications
To copy to a different editor:
Select a driver set.
Select the target Identity Vault in the other Modeler editor where you want the driver set to be copied to.
By default, the new driver set is created in the same Identity Vault as the one that it was copied from. However, if you select another Identity Vault, the driver set is copied there.
After you copy and paste, you might need to move the pasted objects to a better location so that they don’t cover up an existing object. To do this, leave the objects selected after you paste them, then move them. Another way to easily select objects:
Right-click a driver set.
Move one of the selected applications.
All connected applications move together.
When you copy a driver set, it has the same settings, except for the selected servers, which are blank. This exception occurs because the Identity Manager engine does not allow more than one driver set on an Identity Vault to be associated with the same server. Therefore, you need to set up the servers for the new driver set. If you copy an Identity Vault, Designer copies the driver sets. The new driver set has the same server settings set up for you.
You can select multiple driver sets and then copy and paste them. To copy and paste multi-driver connections, you must copy the driver set or Identity Vault that contains them. In Designer 2.0, if you copy the application that has a multi-driver connection, the application and only one of its drivers are copied.
You can copy and paste Identity Vaults within the same editor, to another editor in the same Modeler space, or in a specific Domain Group.
Select an Identity Vault.
Select nothing or the target Domain Group (in the same editor or another) where you want the Identity Vault to be copied to.
If you select nothing, the new Identity Vault is copied to the right of the previous Identity Vault in the current editor.
The new Identity Vault appears to the right of the previous Identity Vault and is the same size as the one that it is being copied from.
When you copy an Identity Vault, Designer copies all of the elements of the Identity Vault. The elements include servers, e-mail templates, driver sets, and connected applications.
You can select multiple Identity Vaults and then copy and paste them.
You can copy and paste Domain Groups within the same editor or to another editor in the same Modeler space or in a specific Domain Group.
Select a Domain Group.
Select the location for the new Domain Group.
If you select nothing, the new Domain Group is copied to the right of the previous Domain Group in the current editor.
The new Domain Group appears to the right of the previous Domain Group, and is the same size as the one it was copied from.
When you copy a Domain Group in the same editor, Designer copies all of the attributes of the Domain Group. However, Designer doesn’t copy all subelements.
You can select multiple Domain Groups and then copy and paste them.
To easily copy and paste between two editors:
Using the Project view, open two projects.
One project is active. The second project’s tab displays at the top of the Modeler.
Close the palette by clicking the control arrow on the palette’s title bar.
Click the second project’s tab and drag it to the Modeler’s right border.
The tab changes to a folder icon until it arrives near the border, where the folder changes to an arrow.
Release the mouse.
Copy items from one editor to the other.
