How can I bulk move issues in Jira Cloud with next-gen projects?

I'd like to bulk move all open issues from one project to another. I've seen the instructions for Jira Software, but I don't have a "Tools" button, and the ... button on the top right of the search page shows "no available options".

Hi @natalie_godec

The options button (3 dots in top-right corner) does contain the Bulk Change button on Jira Cloud. This is located on the issue search page (Magnifying Glass > Advanced search for issues). Used it to move some Next-Gen issues just now to verify.

If you aren't seeing an option for Bulk Change - check the global permissions for it. You'll need to be a Site Admin for this:

  • Click Settings (the cog icon on the far-left navigation bar
  • Select System, then under Security select Global Permissions
  • Ensure the user group you are part of has the "Bulk Change" permission - if not, activate it and try to move the issues again

^ Let us know if either of these solve the issue :)


this helped me out a lot! thank you!
