Suppose, you want to set workflow scheme from the template project to another project. The code would be something like that:

Project project = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager().getProjectObjByKey("projectKey");

Project templateProject = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager().getProjectObjByKey("projectKey");

ComponentAccessor.getWorkflowSchemeManager().addSchemeToProject(project, ComponentAccessor.getWorkflowSchemeManager().getSchemeFor(templateProject));

WorkflowSchemeManager extends SchemeManager. You have a addSchemeToProject() method.

hi Alex,

I want to copy a workflow scheme from a template project and assign that copied workflow scheme to a new project. i tried your code, but it doesn't work. It remove the workflow scheme from both template and target project. When i go to admin page edit the template workflow scheme, the log shows the error below.
