Is it possible to clone a custom field configuration?

Hi there,

Is is possible to clone a custom field configuration.  I'm finding it very manual setting these up for product categorization, as some projects require a full set of options and others a sub set from that.

Would be great to be able to copy over part or clone all and remove those not needed a project to save as the field configuration for each individual project.

Many thanks,

Hello Cathy,


Far as I am aware, there is unfortunately no way to copy a field configuration.

If you have fields that are difficult to manage (like lists with lots of options, or lists that need to be regularly updated for instance), a workaround will be available using Insight which allows you to create fields taking values from a CMDB that you can easily update using CSV imports.

Insight is currently an Add-On but is has recently been acquired by Atlassian and will soon be included in the Cloud versions of Jira.


Let me know if it helped,



is this add-on available now?

Here is the link to the Add-On :
