Clone a RightScript

Table of Contents


To clone a RightScript so that it becomes your own (Private) RightScript that you can customize to suit your needs.

Table of Contents


You cannot edit a committed revision of a RightScript.  You must clone it in order to create an editable version under DesignRightScripts


  • Go to Design > RightScripts.  Select one of the available RightScripts that you would like to clone. 
  • When you click the Clone action button, an editable copy (HEAD version) of that RightScript will be created. 
  • You may notice a warning message that the cloned object will have its usage reported to RightScale. This message is meant to convey the fact that RightScale is able to track the lineage of an object even if it's cloned.

By default, the version of a RightScript will be incremented.  For example, if you clone "Script v8" the new cloned version will be named "Script v9".  Therefore, we recommend changing the name of the RightScript to help better distinguish the cloned script from its ancestor.   Under the Info tab, notice that we always show where a script was cloned from.
