If you want to create a new workstation profile that is similar to an existing one, you can save time by making a duplicate. 

When you duplicate a workstation profile, you make a copy that has all of the same settings in place as the original, but is a separate profile. So you can make any changes to the duplicate and use it as a workstation profile in its own right. This can be much quicker than setting up a new workstation profile from scratch.

To duplicate a workstation profile:

  1. Log on as a studio owner or studio manager. Only these types of user have the permission to duplicate a workstation profile.Select Studio.
  2. Select your studio and then select Manage Studio.

    The Studio list shows a list of the studios in SimpleCloud. A studio has been selected, revealing its Manage Studio option. A callout arrow is pointing to the Manage Studio option.
  3. Select Workstations.
  4. In the workstation profiles list, select the workstation profile that you want to copy.
  5. Select the arrow next to the Update button to display a menu, and then select Duplicate.

    Option button next to Update button is selected. It reveals a menu which contains options for Disable, Delete, and Duplicate.
  6. Enter a name and codename for the duplicate and then select Accept.

    Duplicate machine profile dialog. It requests users to enter a name and codename.
    By default, the duplicate has a name that matches the original but with brackets and a number as a suffix.

SimpleCloud adds the duplicate to the workstation profiles list. It is now a workstation profile in its own right, completely separate from the original workstation profile. You can edit it to make any changes that you need.
