How to clone a Project and it's Issues?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Administering a project

How can I clone a Project and it's Issues? Goal is to let a new project and it's contents/issues/etc be an exact copy of an already existing project.

You need code for that - there's a few add-ons in the marketplace that can do it.  Natively, you can't - JIRA will let you set up a project with the same schemes, but cloning all the issues is simply not in there.

and this is just so bad... So many posts on the subject, 700 votes for the issue in support, and still no updates.

As mentioned in a post from another user, when deleting and modifying are available, what on earth goes through the mind of the marketing team not to include copy features.

So many projects come with a need for preset environments (workflow, user rights and schemes, generic tasks) that I'm amazed as always it requires so much redundancy in setting them up again and again

 

701 votes.  This functionality is SO needed!  I've got three project "schemes" - that is, there are three projects that contain the same exact issues - but which are cloned manually a few times per week.  Definitely gonna look at the add-on for this, given Atlassian's lag in getting this baked into their cloud version.
