Copy a Content Type

If you are working on a content structure similar to an existing content type in your stack, then it is best to copy the existing content type and reuse it.

To create a copy of an existing content type, log in to your Contentstack account, go to your stack, and perform the following steps:

    1. Click on the “Content Models” icon on the left navigation panel to view the list of available content types.
    2. Hover over the content type you want to make a copy of, and click on the “Copy Content Type” icon that appears at the extreme right end.
    3. This opens the Copy Content Type {your_content_type_name} form, where you can edit and change the details of your content type.
    4. Finally, click on the Copy button to make a copy of your content type. The change(s) gets saved automatically and opens the new copy content type.
