Good question, and welcome to the community!

I’m checking the docs and do not see that as a possible input for App_CloneSubClientRequest:

https://documentation.commvault.com/11.25/essential/106075_rest_api_post_clone_subclient.html

with that in mind, we DO have a Workflow that will copy all of the config details here:

https://documentation.commvault.com/11.25/expert/139052_migration_of_virtualization_clients_to_indexing_version_2.html

This might be just what you need.

Let me know if there’s any questions you have about this!
