Cloning a project


I have a project that I would need to clone for creating a new project (I need to to keep the old one as is) or export/import all the ideas to a new project.

Any idea about how to do it?

You can export the ideas to csv like any other Jira issues, using a filter search, and then import them back to a new project, using the external system import.

I'm not really sure you can. Can you elaborate on how I can do this?

So, I have a Product Discovery project, which I customise, add some new custom fields, rename some existing fields, change contents of some existing drop downs. And I add my ideas/line items.

So to clone this are you saying I need to: 

1. Export from the above project to csv.

2. Create a new Product Discovery project

3. Import the .csv to the new project, and it will auto-create the custom fields from the "Cloned" project, the renamed fields, the change drop downs, and auto-import the line items, etc.

I'm not sure it can do that. Has anyone proven this works?

Being able to clone or create from Parent would be really useful.



Hi John,

Like any import into Jira, the import does not auto-create custom fields. It let's you choose for each field in the CSV, the corresponding field in Jira. You can either create the custom fields upfront (no need to add the options of the Select fields (drop down) - they will be added automatically from the CSV) - or create them within the import process (see screenshot). Anyway - you will need to define the fields (name, type) and Jira does not know how to do it for you.

Hi @Paolo Pastorino,

I am Marlene from codefortynine.

Another option would be to clone the project including its issues with Deep Clone for Jira.

You can see how the Project Clone works in this demo video.
