Copying or Moving a Resource

The POST method on the resource service also has parameters to copy or move a resource. Both folders and individual resources can be copied or moved. The ID of the resource being copied or moved must be unique within the destination folder, otherwise the operation will fail. This implies that copying cannot be used to duplicate a resource within the same folder.
