Copy Entity between Schemas preserving metadata

I am authoring an IJC entity to use as a company wide template for data transcription.  I'd like to be able to copy this entity into other IJC schemas (generally on the same host machine).  There doesn't seem to be a good way to do this without loosing all the metadata around the entity/template.  

In order for this to be useful I want to generate fields with limited/specified sets of entries (enums) and have control over the data types of all the fields; this is the information that gets lots with the export/copy facilities that I see available so far (e.g. export to SDF/MRV and import into the desired IJC schema).

Is there a way to do this?

Well, this could be tricky. You may use our Test2Production tool:

But I doubt this is a good way to create a template (I suppose empty) entity.

Maybe better to create it by a Groovy script which can be then run separately in each schema. Please see our Groovy script and scriptlets examples at

Hope it helps...

Thanks, this seems like it'll give me an excuse to learn some Groovy scripting.
