    Hi Jim,

    "Copy Exiting Node" is a core feature and simply copy the configuration of the node. So it basically pre-fill the form based on the configuration of another node.

    Technically, it copies the XML configuration of the source node (stored under $JENKINS_HOME/nodes/$NAME_OF_SOURCE_NODE/config.xml). Them redirect to the node configuration page in case you want to change anything. Once you hit "Save", the node is launched.
