The Copy entity lists step is used to select which lists and what content to copy from an original entity. It is typically used in a process before a Copy entity step in order for users of the process to be able to check which content from which lists they want to be copied over from the original entity.
This is done from the following form displayed when the step is active in the process:
An example of a setup using the Connects an entity to a site could look like the following:
The following image shows the options for the Connects an entity to a site step:
||String||Use this field to give the step a friendly title.
|Description||String||Use this field to give the step a description of use.
|Name||String||Use this field to give this step a unique name used for identification.
|Step Input||Object||Use this field to select an output from a previous step as input for this step.
|Business Module||String||Use this field to select a business module.
|Business Module Entity||String||Use this to define the ID of the business module entity.|
|Copy relations||Boolean||Use this to define if relations on the original entity should be copied.|
|Copy relations locked||Boolean||Use this to define if the "Copy relations" option should be locked.|

This can be useful if an organization has specific policies related to which content must be copied when copying e.g., a case or a project.
An example of a configuration which will copy the contents of the "Documents" library, including folders, and lock the setting could look like the following:
