Hi Mary,
you should be able to zip a resource folder in the IPTs data directory and upload that to create a new resource. There seems to be a bug though that is fixed already for the next release later this week:

Otherwise you should also be able to just manually copy a resource config folder in the filesystem while the IPT is not running. This should work at least for not yet registered resources. Once they are registered I would not recommend to do this.

I don't see how one can change the resourceName...  the mapping exercise was tedious...(boring)and not something that I wish to do manually each time I have a new dataset.  Any suggestions?
