Data Manager customization: postCloneRecordAction

The postCloneRecordAction customization allows you to run logic after the core Data Manager clone record logic is run. It is not expected to return a value and is supplied the following in the args struct:

  • objectName: name of the object
  • newId: ID of the newly cloned record
  • formData: struct containing the form submission
  • existingRecord: struct containing the data from the current record
  • validationResult: validation result from general form validation

For example:

// /application/handlers/admin/datamanager/blog.cfc

component {

	private void function postCloneRecordAction( event, rc, prc, args={} ) {
		// redirect to a different than default page
		setNextEvent( event.buildAdminLink(
			  objectName = "blog"
			, recordId   = ( ?: "" )
			, operation  = "preview"
		) );
