    @Josh Boxer In this way then it requires lot of re work in many places, 1st to the DS and then to all the related objects. I hope we get some features/options in future to handle this situation. Wishlist items :)

    Important when moving (metadata) objects between installations to ensure it is done correctly. There are reasons to want to duplicate rather than update objects, but taking a moment to ensure the correct operation is done will save work in future

    @Josh Boxer Ideally while moving objects from one to other should not the tool suggest that the system already exists do you want to relace or create a new one? in that way users will be aware of this and it will refrain to make mistakes?
