Cloning the Cover and Cover Objects

How can I clone existing Cover and Cover Objects into new one. Where is we can able to use copy option to copy the Cover and Covered objects in that only Cover gets copied [How to copy workobjects will give how to copy ,but cover only able to copy not covered objects], covered objects not gets copied,so is there any option available to Copy or Clone Cover and Covered Objects altogether
[Means need to copy with another Cover and Covered Objects with different Cover number with covered objects]
Advance Thanks

We don't provide an out-of-the-box solution for this as of v6.1

We do that exact thing here.

1. Copy the Cover to a new page
2. Remove flow related properties from new cover
3. Call GenerateID to get a new cover ID (out of the box function)
4. update time, operator, Org, Unit, Division in new cover
5. Copy Work Items (new activity) loop through values in pxCoveredInsKeys.
6. Save New Cover
7. copy new cover to pyWorkPage
8. Save pyWorkPage

Copy work items:
1. Obj-Open-By-Handle using value from step 5 above.
2. Copy pyWorkPage to new item
3. Remove flow properties from new item
4. Call GenerateID to get new item ID
5. Save new item ID to New cover pxCoveredInsKeys value list
5. Save new item
6. Remove temp pages.

Make sure you completely understand your cover and cover items before starting to build this. And test the heck out of it. Particularly the 2nd, 3rd and 4th copies to make sure you are getting what you expect with subsequent copies.

Have Fun,
