This method takes an existing private channel and performs the following steps:
Renames the existing private channel (from "example" to "example-archived").
Archives the existing private channel.
Creates a new private channel with the name of the existing private channel.
Adds all members of the existing private channel to the new private channel.
This is useful when inviting a new member to an existing private channel while hiding
all previous chat history from them. In this scenario you can call
groups.createChild followed by groups.invite.
The new private channel will have a special parent_group property pointing to the
original archived private channel. This will only be returned for members of both
private channels, so will not be visible to any newly invited members.
Authentication token bearing required scopes.
Private channel to clone and archive.
