Only patches potentially applicable to one of your channels can be cloned. Patches can be applicable to a channel if that channel was cloned from a channel to which the patch applies. To access this functionality, click Main Menu  Patches  Clone Patches.

On the Clone Patches page, select the channel containing the patch from the View drop-down box and click View. When the patch list appears, select the check box of the patch to be cloned and click Clone Patch. A confirmation page appears with the patch listed. Click Confirm to finish cloning.

The cloned patch appears in the Unpublished patch list. Verify the patch text and the packages associated with that patch, then publish the patch so it is available to users in your organization.
