How to setup default Service Desk request types?

We're about to migrate from Redmine to JIRA and I have about 50 projects that require a Service Desk. Is it possible to make a default "Request Types" that will be consistent across all 50 projects? I don't want to have to go in and 1 by one make them the same.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There is no way to do that at this time.

Ouch, that is brutal. Thanks for the reply though.

So we have an open feature request for the ability to clone request types: and I have gone ahead and filed one for the ability to set defaults:

Thanks @Boris Berenberg !

I agree. This is very painful.

Oh wow. Thats a lot of work  and consistency management for every new project. 

So, I am assuming that, based on the comment 3 1/2 years later in June of 2018, that there no communication or plan from Jira regarding this? 

Has this been updated or added to Jira?

No change yet.  Sorry.

Is there another way of doing this that I am missing?

You can resolve this issue in JIRA Service Desk projects by setting up a custom rule under the Automation settings so that when a request for support is emailed in and the issue is created it sets the request type to IT Help. If you have multiple service desk projects you would just have to setup the automation rule in each one.
