LabKey supports copying all or part of the wiki documentation from one project or folder to another. This can be useful when setting up a new similar project or in a case when you test out a new documentation package before 'deploying' to a public location. You must have administrative privileges on the source folder to copy wikis.
Copy All Wiki Pages
To copy all pages in a folder, follow these steps:
- Create the destination folder, if it does not already exist.
- In the source folder, create a Wiki TOC web part (it may be named "Pages" by default), if one does not already exist.
- Select Copy from the triangle pulldown menu on the Wiki TOC web part.
- Select the destination folder from the tree. Note that the source folder itself is selected by default, so be sure to click a new folder if you want to avoid creating duplicates of all pages in the source folder itself.
- Check the box provided if you want to Copy Histories Also. Otherwise, all past edit history will only remain with the source wiki.
If a page with the same name already exists in the destination wiki, the page will be given a new name in the destination folder (e.g., page becomes page1).
Copy a Single Page via URL Action
You can copy a single page to another folder from the URL. The URL action is copySinglePage.
The following table describes the available parameters.
|sourceContainer||The path to the container containing the pages to be copied.|
|destContainer||The path to the destination container. If the container does not exist, it will be created.|
|path||If destContainer is not specified, path is used to determine the destination container.|
|pageName||The name of the page to copy.|
|isCopyingHistory||Set to "true" to include the wiki edit history in the copy.|
This URL copies the page named "MyPage" (and not its children) from the "MyDocs" project to the destination container MyDocs/NewFolder, creating that folder if it does not yet exist, and including edit history in the copied version.
Copying multiple pages via URL action is not supported.
