does anyone know a way to quickly copy journeys from Journey Builder from one business unit to another one?

It would be a huge time saver when we're setting up new journeys on separate business units that follow the same logic and have a complicated structure. I imagine it would be possible either via API or with some external tools that utilize the API to perform the action.

I've managed to read the json structure of a specific journey with the following API calls:

  • GET /interaction/v1/interactions (to get the list of journeys on a MID and the ID of the journey that I want to retrieve)
  • GET /interaction/v1/interactions/{id} (to retrieve the chosen journey)

Is it somehow possible to use the returned JSON to create a clone in a different business unit? I imagine that it might not be immediately possible to copy and publish immediately, but even being able to copy as a draft on another business unit would be helpful and less prone to human error.

Has anyone done something similar in the past to streamline their work?

  • I'm guessing no, but don't let that deter you from giving it a shot. Journey templates are just around the corner, so it may lessen the need to do what you're talking about. – Adam Spriggs Nov 9 '17 at 22:04

    Hi, Adam, thanks for the answer. Journey templates could indeed be helpful. It might be a fun project to test the API and coding skills and I might attempt to develop something like this in the future. – Rufenstein Nov 10 '17 at 13:56
  • Hey @rafal were you able to achieve this ? We are currently facing the same situation where we need to clone journeys to different BU's. – Vic Jul 28 '18 at 20:48

    Hey @Vic, I sadly had to abandon the search due to time constraints. I can say I managed to clone a journey without the entry event within a business unit (should be possible to post it a different BU as well). You need to do the following: get the token, retrieve all journeys from a given BU, find the journey you want cloned and retrieve the Journey ID, get the Journey based on the ID, insert the journey where you want it. – Rufenstein Jul 30 '18 at 14:01

    @Vic, I just noticed that you should be able to retrieve the entry event as well (and possibly insert it into a clone): salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/71132/…? This might lead you to a proper solution. – Rufenstein Jul 30 '18 at 14:01

there is a Salesforce Labs app that can now accomplish copying the canvas from one BU to another
