Duplicate Reports and Connections with RPE 2.1

With RPE 2.1 Document Builder (Web Services), you can duplicate an existing report to create copy of it and then modify the report as needed like add or remove a template, output formats, etc. Find more details here. Note that the report configuration like  data source to connection association, variable values and any other report parameters will not be copied.

For a data source connection, credentials and other parameters could be same for most of the connections apart from the URL. Hence, a report designer could now duplicate a connection from RPE 2.1. Check here for the exact steps.
