How to clone an action or pipeline?

If you want to use the same pipeline across several projects or want to use an action in some other pipeline, you can do that using Buddy's unified cloning mechanism. This way you won't have to, for example, re-enter details every time.

How to clone an existing pipeline:

  1. Go to Pipelines and click Add a new pipeline in the right column
  2. Click Clone existing pipeline, top-right, to bring up the cloning box
  3. Select the source scenario and action to import
  4. Hit Clone actions button to confirm the changes

How to import actions into an existing scenario:

  1. Go to details of the pipeline that you want to update and click Add another action
  2. Select Clone from another scenario, top-right to bring up the cloning box
  3. Select the source scenario and action to import
  4. Hit Clone actions button to confirm the changes

Cloned pipelines and actions retain all details (authorization data, paths, etc.) except for the server revision: unless you set up the revision beforehand, the first deploy will start from scratch.
