No, you cannot copy a vault, but, you can export the components of one vault and import them into a new vault.
Open a card in the Card editor and select File > Export. A new .crd file will be created.
For workflows, Open the PDMWorks Enterprise Administration tool and select File > New Export file. In the newly opened window, drag the BOMs, Cardlists, Categories, Columns, Data Import/Export rules, Groups, Revisions, Users, Variables and Workflows that you wish to export (just select those you want) and save as .cex file that can be imported into a new vault (to import, right click on the new vault name, select Import and select the file to import.)
Templates can also be exported and imported.
Thanks a lot for the input. Very useful indeed.
This works but it does not seem to carry over any settings in the different states and transitions. For instance I can export the workflows but I have to go back in and redo all the notifications, revision update settings and everything else in each state or transition.
Am I missing something?
No you are not missing anything, exporting workflow links is not supported. All links will need to be manually recreated.
