How to programmatically duplicate an entity

Is there a way to programmatically duplicate an entity?  It seems some entities don't have thing templates, so they cannot be created with a thing template.

Hi @Velkumar 

 

I wanted to know how to duplicate a thing in case I'm not able to access the 'Scheduler' thingTemplate in TWX 8.5.3 mentioned in my other post.  

I found a few services for cloning entities under "EntityServices".

Hi @Willie 

 

It is not possible to duplicate entities programmatically. Could you please explain your use case so we can find some workaround?

My bad I didn't check for keyword clone.  Great
