Groovy 6 - clone test step assertion using Groovy script in soapUI

Yesterday, I found one interesting question in eviware forum [thread] : seeking the information about replicating the "Clone Assertion" feature from soapUI Pro into the soapUI open source using the groovy. So i thought of trying my hand on the same and shared below is the working piece of code to achieve the same.

P.S. : I have also updated the eviware forum thread and people who 'hates' blog can read the solution in the thread. And thanks to the user for raising this question in forum :-)

# Create 2 property at testcase level named "sourceTestStep" & "targetTestStep" respectively.
# Always copy and paste the name of teststep when update the value of newly defined property, so as to reduce the possibility of TYPO error.
# Create a groovy test step then paste the below code and run the test step. Done!

@Description : Clone all the assertion from TestStep [SourceTestStep proptery] into the target TestSTep [TargetTestStep property] by executing a groovy test step.

import com.eviware.soapui.model.testsuite.Assertable
def project = context.testCase.testSuite.project
def testSuite = project.getTestSuiteAt(1)
def testCase = testSuite.getTestCaseAt(0)
def sourceTestStep = context.expand( '${#TestCase#SourceTestStep}' )
def targetTestStep = context.expand( '${#TestCase#TargetTestStep}' )

def testStepSrc = testCase.getTestStepByName(sourceTestStep)
def testStepTrgt = testCase.getTestStepByName(targetTestStep)
def counter = testStepSrc.getAssertionList().size()
for (count in 0..<counter)
    testStepTrgt.cloneAssertion(testStepSrc.getAssertionAt(count), testStepSrc.getAssertionAt(count).getName())
