Is there a way to clone a specific source or destination so that one can change a single setting without having to recreate the whole source or destination?

Hi @Justin Cole, no this is not something you can achieve in the UI. A hacky way to do this is to export your configurations in Settings > Configuration and edit the exported config files by copy/pasting existing configurations, editing them and importing the configurations back, but I'd suggest doing it only if you have a lot of configurations to clone.

I'm glad you outlined this is the only way to do it. I suggested this as a possible means of getting around the issue to the people I am working with. Good to know I am on the right track with it. The connection ID seems to be arbitrarily created but should be unique per connection. Is there a methodology to simulating the system's method of creating the connection ID?

Yes you can generate UUID yourself and use them as connection id:
uuidgen | tr "[:upper:]" "[:lower:]"

Scrolling back to this.. Do I need to use this command to generate the unique IDs or is it fine so long as they don't conflict with anything else in the system?
