base_entity_id (str) – Entity id from which to split.

variable ids to copy from old entity
and move to new entity.
make_time_index (bool or str, optional) – Create time index for new entity based

uses the primary time index. Defaults to True if base entity has a time index.
make_secondary_time_index (dict[str -> list[str]], optional) – Create a secondary time index

secondary time index is allowed. If None, only associate the time index.
