In this section you copy process management settings from one plant to another one.

The individual Customizing objects are always copied together with their assignments.

The system does not copy

  • an object and its assignments, if the object already exists in the target plant
  • assignments, if the assigned object does not exist in the target plant and was not selected for copying

When the copying is finished you get a list of the copied objects as well as a list of the objects that were not copied.


The process message categories A1 and A2 and the destination E1 are to be copied from plant 0001 to plant 0002.
