You can create a duplicate of an imported or extracted field.

Cloning a field can be useful when you want to extract more than one field from an event and both fields appear in a similar context. Go to the Fields Library page and locate the extracted field you want to clone. When you clone a field, VMware Aria Operations for Logs (SaaS) creates a copy of the field with the word Copy appended to the field name. Modify the values in the Clone Field window and save your work.
