Duplicate form data API

Availability

Since Orbeon Forms 4.7.

Internal uses

The API is also used internally by the Summary page via the Duplicate button.

Purpose

The purpose of the duplicate API is to duplicate form data, including form data attachments. This API cannot be used to duplicate auto-saved data, as it doesn't provide a way for the caller to specify whether the data to duplicate was auto-saved or not.
