We have an experience already in production and we need to create an almost identical one but removing verticals.
We don’t see a problem in the backend part (answers) but for the frontend part (pages). We can’t duplicate this part.
To duplicate an Answers Frontend repo, I’d suggest using the Yext CLI.
The Yext CLI is a really powerful tool that, among other things, allows you to quickly clone account configurations and resources, as shown in this guide.
During one of our recent Hitchhikers Office Hours, we walked through the process of using the Yext CLI to duplicate resources, including an Answers Frontend, so I’d suggest watching the recording as a starting point! Here is the link - the CLI portion starts at the 5:15 mark.
Hope this helps!
