Duplicate or Edit Containers
In Portainer you have the ability to duplicate and / or edit your containers.
Duplicate a running container
To duplicate a container, click Containers and then select the container you want to duplicate.
Change the settings you need, in this example I have changed the name of the container and published a random port, the port exposed by the container by default. When all the changes needed are done, click Deploy the Container
If everything worked as expected, you will see your duplicate container in the containers list.
Edit a container
You can change: * The command & logging options, * volumes, * Networks, * Environment Variables, * Labels, * Restart Policy, * Runtime & Resources and * Capabilites.
To change a running container, you need to click Containers, Choose the container you want to change.
Scrolldown to the bottom of the page and you will see the options to configure to this container.
When the changes are made, click Deploy Container. You will see a warning about removing and re-creating the current container with the new settings.
If everything works as expected, you will see a pop up confirming the creation of the new container with the new settings and the removal of the old one.
