How to quickly copy node configuration from node to node (action to action)?

Creating a New Node by Copying an Existing Node

To create a new node that replicates the configuration of an existing node, follow these steps:

  • Identify the node you wish to copy.
  • Access the advanced configuration options for the new node. Look for the JSON icon, typically located in the toolbar.
  • Click on the JSON icon to open the advanced configuration panel. This panel allows you to view and edit the JSON representation of the node's configuration.
  • This JSON contains all the necessary information to recreate the node.
  • Select the entire JSON code and copy it to the clipboard. You can usually do this by right-clicking and choosing the " Copy" option, or by using the keyboard shortcut (e.g., Ctrl+C or Command+C).
  • Create a new node in your desired location. Ensure that the new node you create is the same type as this existing node.
  • Once the new node is created, access its advanced configuration options as before and open the JSON panel.
  • In the JSON panel, paste the previously copied JSON code into the text field. To do this, right-click inside the field and choose the "Paste" option, or use the keyboard shortcut (e.g., Ctrl+V or Command+V).
  • After pasting the JSON code, click Save.
  • Review the configuration of the new node to ensure that everything has been copied correctly. Make any necessary adjustments or modifications if needed.
  • Save the changes and exit the advanced configuration mode.
