Insight - Looking for an easy way to copy Insight attribute values to another Insight object

Dirk Ronsmans Community Leader Aug 19, 2022


So in my use case I got a couple of Insight objects e.g.

  • Object 1
  • Object 2

and Object 1 has an attribute of type "Object reference (unlimited)" with some values (20+)

Now I'm looking for an easy way to copy over these references from Object 1 to Object 2 without having to select them 1 by 1.

I'll probably have to do this 20-30 times and the attribute values will be 95% the same. So it'll be faster to clean up the differences instead of having to re-select all the values.


Anybody got an idea on how this can be easily done? Maybe export/import and update the values?

Hi @Dirk Ronsmans - You could probably do this with a global automation rule.  

  1. TRIGGER: Scheduled
  2. BRANCH: IQL for your DESTINATION objects
    1. Lookup Objects: Perform lookup to find the SOURCE object
    2. Edit Object: Select the Object Reference (Unlimited) attribute and set it to {{lookupObjects.Object Reference (Unlimited)}}

Hopefully that helps.

Hey @Mark Segall

Thanks for the inspiration, sadly we're still stuck on an older Automation version so I'm unable to try it out right now.

I ended up writing a little script (with scriptrunner) to do it. Seems to also provide me with more control that way :)

But atleast you confirmed me that there is on real copy/paste way to do it (sadly)

Ahh bummer.  At least you have scriptrunner in your environment.
