Copy/Paste of actions/structures in Integration Studio

Integration
On our radar
It would be (very) nice to be able to copy/past, at least actions and structures, from one extension to another.

Maybe this idea could be merged with Clone an extension in Integration Studio and Ability to clone Extensions. I believe all these ideas refer to the same problem: having to re-create structures and actions in extensions.
Copy and paste an action in Integration Studio.

I'd like to copy and past  actions in integration studio. In the edit menu copy and past is present but it doesn't work for actions.
Sometimes you have functions with almost the same signature and copy/past would be a time saver.

And the same goes for structures that would help a lot also!

Many times we have similar actions and it would much faster if we could clone them an then just do some changes than create each one by scratch.

If copy/paste would've been possible, it would have saved me litteraly many days of work. I have an extension (for the Dutch energy dudes: NMM XML interface) that has over a hundred structures, all of which have the same damn layout (header, content, etc.). Not being able to copy/paste really made my life incredibly miserable :( OutSystems, fix this (even if it's too late for my sanity...)
Agreed. 
A complete overhaul of Integration Studio is long overdue... It hasn't been updated in years, and the first point on the improvement list should be copy/paste capabilities.
Once again, I lost time in typing everything manually in integration studio whilst with a copy/paste, I could have done the same job in seconds.

Dear Development team: we need this. :)

Copy/Paste between Service Studio and Integration Studio would improve the experience greatly

Still waiting for this.....

I'd like to be able to copy/paste entities and structures and use paste-as-structure like it's done on Service Studio.
This would really speed up most integration processes.

I was very much surprised to find that this kind of basic functionality is missing in v. 10.

There are standard editor buttons in the toolbar - copy, paste, cut... - but they work only if some text field is selected, to copy the text itself. If I want to copy many fields or parameters - that is a problem...

I do this ALL THE TIME. What do you mean the "functionality is missing"?

Integration Studio, Justin :). Not being able to copy structures has cost me days and days of work. I'm sure this is already an Idea, I'll see if I can find it.

Currently can not duplicate an action or struct or entity in Integration Studio, can do this will help a lot.

In integration studio, it is difficult to quickly scaffold many similar actions/entities/structures. For example, when building an integration for a payment gateway, you must use a set of identical parameters across every action you wish to interact with the gateway as it requires those parameters to make the connection. Additionally, sometimes the parameters of an action are a subset of parameters for another action. This common duplication scenario should be supported by Integration Studio! It would save developers a lot of time manually creating and recreating these parameters for every action/entity/structure that demands it.

This idea is posted before afaik.

Even though I fully endorse it, I doubt they will do it, because Integration Studio is just an escape goat if it cannot be solved in Service Studio.

There are thousands of services out there that have SDKs and APIs that would be great to have integrated with OutSystems which are not there yet. If OutSystems wants to be a big player, they should make easy changes that foster the open-source community and the ongoing integration of the latest/greatest tech. 

It just seems to me like it's a fairly small change that would go a long way in the usability of Integration Studio. It's one of those things that, even though I know the ability isn't there, I keep trying to copy/past/duplicate things around because it really feels like it should be there.

Also, thanks for the full endorsement, J

I know, yet integration studio hasn't been changed since, well, since I started working on it :)

besides some minor fixes, updates of runtimes etc.

That only means it is long overdue to receive some love. They really need to do a full review of Integration Studio and this item should be high on the priority list.

Agreed - there are more usability issues with Integration Studio than just this, and it could really use a bit of a revamp. Including maybe some more docs on how to use the included platform libraries with some examples.

Hi Team,
