I would like to know if it is possible to add an existing metadata element to a new container?

2 questions please

  1. how to retrieve something that's in test? I supposed I need to do a git clone on the test repository?
  2. I need to find out how to get the "field name" (example: ^ca_objects.my-field-here) so I can create display formats. Is it as simple as ^tablename.fieldname?

thanks a lot

@tony-rc No, at least not using the UI. You could try moving it in plain SQL -- that could work. Could have weird side effects though, so definitely try it out on a test system before you do anything
@mrjayviper What do you mean "in test"?
And yes, it's usually table_name.fieldname / table_name.element_code. Or tablename.container.element_code ... there are a few "special" bundles that have different notations (like ca_objects.preferred_labels -- that doesn't technically correspond to an actual field) but there are only a handful
