Clone a task

Last Updated: Apr 10, 2018

DataWorks provides Clone feature to improve data development efficiency and code reuse accuracy.


  1. Go to Task Development in the left-side navigation pane of Data Development page. Right-click a task and select Clone.


  2. Enter a name for the cloned task in the dialog box. Select the Scheduling Type. Specify a directory for saving the cloned task. Click Copy.


  3. You can locate the cloned task in the specified directory after the copy.

    The cloned task has the same code and upstream dependency as those of the source task, but downstream dependency does not get copied to the cloned task.
