Copy the File contents from one entity to another

0
We need to do some refactoring. Assume the following: We have an entity OrderDocument which is a generalization from System.File. This entity is already used in production. We want to replace the OrderDocument by another entity named CustomerDocument and migrate the data. I created a migration flow which retrieves all the OrderDocuments, iterate over them and creates a new CustomerDocument for each. I can easily copy the attributes to the new entity, but have problems copying the file contents. I found the DuplicateFileDocument java action from the Community commons, which seems to be suited for this. However it has the following pre condition --> "HasContents of the 'fileToClone' need to be set to true, otherwise the action will not copy anything.". I can not directly alter the HasContent attribute of the new CustomerDocument. How should I change this attribute or are the better ways to copy file contents from one entity to another?

'fileToClone' is your SOURCE file. If it has no contents there is indeed nothing to clone.

(HasContents is set by the Mendix Runtime)
