Copy the settings of an index to another index on the same app.

When creating a new index (for example, a temporary testing index or a new replica), you may need to copy the settings from a source of truth.

Note that this removes all settings currently present in the destination index, and replaces them with the settings from the source.

If the destination index you’ve named doesn’t exist, the method creates it. The newly created index has the settings of the source index, but not the records, Rules, or synonyms.

This method only copies index settings, not Rules and synonyms. You can use the copyIndex method to copy Rules, synonyms, settings or records.
