I have site collection /sites/sitecollection-A ( around 2 GB data in it ) , I want to clone this site collection A and use it for further operations with different names.
The cloned site collection would be different URL Example: (sites/ sitecollection-B, )

is it possible to achieve this with out migration tool? After cloning site collection B has to contain same data but different URL.
Is it possible with PnP powerShell, if yes please provide me steps with screenshots.
I think we can change the URL at SP admin centre but I want this to be automated.

After achieving above requirement,
& all these requirement is like when user go and click some where in some area in SharePoint site, site collection B has to be created
Like this when ever & who ever wants clone of the site collection A , they should go and click on some where in the area then site collection C, site collection D should be created and so on..

Whenever I say "some where in some area" you can suggest where we can pick that area in the site. Thank you.

    Hi @sns ,
    It seems PnP Provisioning Engine unable to reach your requirement. It's about create site template. But your requirement seems to migrate a site. The ShareGate Echo provided is better to accomplish the requirement.
