In a company based software project [cloud], how can one auto create a list of say 100+ predefined tasks in sequence whenever a new EPIC is created.
Same 100+ tasks should be recreated again in backlog when a new EPIC is created in the same project.
Do the stories each have unique values in their fields?
How do you establish the sequence of the issues?
Would you get the right 100+ stories if you could clone an existing epic and its child stories?
There are a few different ways this might be achieved.
One solution is to manually import the stories to the Epic from a CSV file.
Another might be to use an app that supports creating issue templates. In my searching I ran across this one that specifically says you can create Epics plus child stories from a template. I've never used this before, so use at your own risk. And there may be other apps that provide similar functionality.
If cloning an existing epic would work for you, then an app like Deep Clone might work. Again, I've not used the app before, and there may be others that provide similar functionality.
Unfortunately, JIRA Cloud does not provide an option to clone child stories while cloning an Epic. See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-7721?error=login_required&error_description=Login+required&state=7f14ba2f-3d47-4ec0-847a-3c6d1195e52d
Let me know if any of those suggestions are helpful or if you have additional questions on them.
If I create another project of similar type called "Project template" and upload tasks through csv in it. Then, in my actual project, I create an Automation rule that whenever an epic is created, it should copy the tasks underneath the new EPIC created from this "Project template". Will that work. If yes, then can you please provide some info on how this can be done through automation.
