How to "Copy" an Entity to create a new Entity?

Posted on by 351

I need create a new entity in my CRM system. But according the requirement, this new entity is same as another working entity, even the business logics on it are same, only the diffrence is the name. Is there any short cut way to "Copy" the working entity to create the new one? Thanks!

    Hi Datadvancer,

    You will need to create another entity, but you can use the Clone Field Definitions Plugin in the XrmToolBox to copy field definitions from an entity to another entity.
