    Cloning Form: Does Third Party Cloning Include API Details?

    Asked by markashton on July 23, 2013 at 04:07 PM


    With this thread in mind: http://www.jotform.com/answers/243967-Feature-Request-Ability-To-Prevent-A-Form-From-Being-Cloned

    Can you advise me that if a third-party was to clone a form would all the filepicker details be cloned too so that the cloner would have access to the secret Filepicker API and Jotform Amazon S3 bucket?

    I look forward to your response in advance of my thoroughly investigative test, that you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be carrying out ;-)

    Many Thanks

    Regards Mark

    Hi Mark,

    To clarify, all API details including emails, integrations and other sensitive account credentials (like Paypal and other payment integrations) are NOT included when a form is cloned. You can try that out for your self. They will be filtered and automatically cleared when a form is copied to another account.

    Feel free to let us know if you have any other questions.
