How do I clone an epic and all stories within the epic to a new epic?

Without using any add-ons or custom coding, is there a way through "Project Automation" that we can clone an epic that has 20 stories in it to a new epic with the same 20 stories cloned?

I am able to clone the epic and it creates a new epic, but the stories get cloned in the original epic not the new epic.

Currently, we have to instead create an epic with sub-tasks, clone the epic with the sub-tasks and then use the move function to move the sub-tasks to stories.  This should be an obvious feature for agile development software.

I managed to create this automation using {{createdIssue.key}}

@Ovadia Babayev  how do you link the newly cloned tasks to the newly cloned epic?

I have added a the field Epic Link with the value {{createdIssue.key}}

You can see in the image I have attached.

Why don't you try to use a csv file?

You create your epic with your tasks and do an import. It will create it the way you want.
