@GSung ,

I don't see a way to duplicate a folder worth of Projects. Are you hoping for a feature here on the folder project menu that says something like "Copy To" on this Folder of Projects sub-menu?

Duplicate a folder of Projects.jpg

How would you use something like this?  That may suggest to others how we might be able to help.

I have two partial ideas. 

One I've been wondering about going onto the disk structure and try to copy projects from one system to another.  Although I've not worked out how to specifically copy a folder of projects.  With the help of the Dataiku Support team, I have copied a DSS_DATA Directory from one volume on my server to another. (So I expect something can be done. )  (However, I end up copying ALL of the projects.  Not Just a subfolder.)

If you are using a version of DSS that is licensed to provide the support you, or your technology support person may be able to reach out to Tech Support for some guidance.

@tgb417  Yup, I thought there might be an indirect way to copy a folder containing projects but looks like there isn't a feature to do so yet.

I'll definitely suggest this as a new feature.

thank you!

@GSung ,

I just got an update from the community admins.  The feedback board I had suggested be updated with this idea is apparently just for community feedback.  Not product feedback.  This was my misunderstanding about the use of this area of the web site.   I regret any confusion I might have caused.
