Epic template with stories and tasks

Hi there, 

my project has recurring and similar epics. Is there a way to reduce the overhead by establishing an epic template that comes with a standard set of stories, tasks, subtasks and issue links? 
I know I can clone other epics but we tend to modify each one slightly and a standard we can start with each time would be very helpful.

@Elissa Fontaine, I'm always add-on resistant but I've found the Deep Clone add-on to be one of the good ones. It allows you to clone an Epic and its children and edit things during the clone such as setting the Status back to your preferred starting point for instance.

You can try it out on a free trial. I do not work for Codefortynine but I do like their product and the customer service and support are great.

Wow! Thank you for this great feedback, @Danno . I will share this with my team. It's good to know that you appreciate our app.

@Elissa Fontaine don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or feedback about Deep Clone for Jira. We're always happy to help. 

Thanks Danno, will look into it :) 

Hello @Elissa Fontaine ,

You may also benefit from our Easy Templates for Jira Issues app with Epic Templates support.

Thanks Pavel, will look into this too!

Yes! You can use the add-on 'create from template'
