  • overwrite_newer: overwrite newer versions of file at destination (destructive) (default: false)
  • delete_missing: delete files in dest that are missing from source (destructive) (default: false)
  • backup: make ~ backup files instead of overwriting changed files (default: false)

Copy a file or directory from public project to a project for which the user is owner or collaborator.

Note: the timeout option is passed to a call to the rsync command. If no data is transferred for the specified number of seconds, then the copy terminates. The default is 0, which means no timeout.


Copy public file PUBLIC/doc.txt from source project to private file A/sample.txt in target project.
