Copying secrets to another page

When you create a Secret macro, it is automatically available as an entity for the whole space.

In other words, Secret macros belong to a space, and the page that you added the secret to is just a "location" where it is available. This means you can copy a secret to multiple pages within a space. 

Copying secrets to another space

  • Currently, you cannot copy secrets to pages located  in other spaces, even if they reside on the same server. When a secret is created, it is created as an entity for that specific space only.
  • However, there is a feature request track for this at https://servicerocket.aha.io/ideas/ideas/SEC-I-85. Please subscribe and comment with your use case.
