Last Updated: Aug 16, 2018

DataWorks provides Clone feature to improve data development efficiency and code reuse accuracy.The clone task will clone the scheduling attribute together. If the task is frozen, the task of cloning is also frozen.


  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.
