Is there a clone functionality in Jira Align?

sachin gangam December 9, 2021


I would like to know if there is a clone functionality in Jira Align just like the one we have in jira. I was able to copy an epic but it didn't bring all the field data, I had to manually change the field values. It would also be nice to have a link that says 'is Cloned by'.

There is not currently a Clone function in Jira Align. You can copy it, as you have done, or you can split it. 

If you split an Epic, it will create a "Part 1" and a "Part 2". All the completed stories will stay with Part 1, and the incomplete stories will go with Part 2. And there will be an indicator in Jira Align saying there is a Part 1 and Part 2.

Short answer is No.

You can copy epics and stories, but will have to do it one by one and edit ALL of the fields afterwards.

The only useful purpose of this Copy button is if you only need to edit description and acceptance criteria, otherwise you're editing all of the fields.

I would rather create a new one if I have to edit all of the fields.

Hello @Rich Sparks  ,

I am the JA Admin and was trying to edit the fields available in the Clone/Copy screen of Initiative. By any chance can I edit this?

Thank you in advance.
