Title says it all! This would be a real time saver!
While working INSIDE a template, It would be very handy if we had the ability to clone an existing component which already exists within said template, with the resulting copy retaining all the settings of the parent, allowing us to make the required small amendments required to make this new component unique, WITHOUT having to set everything up again each time!
For example, you've got a number of 'Linux/Unix Script Monitor' components, setup with credentials, arguments, and the script body you need to use more than once. It'd be great to be able to copy the completed component, so you can simply edit the script body and statistic name(s) and you're done, rather than having to copy/paste all the component settings.
Such repetition can quickly become a pain in the proverbial when you have larger templates to build out! 😉
A valuable quality of life improvement, methinks! What sat you, THWACKsters? 😎
