Cloning Epic, select to include child issues, but the child issues don't clone, only the Epic does

Hi Atlassian Community


I am having a problem when trying to clone an Epic and all it's child issues.


What I am doing to clone:

  1. View the Epic
  2. Select 3 dots - select Clone
  3. Pop-up box has a tick box to include child issues - tick
  4. Click Clone
  5. View Cloned Epic and there are no child issues attached!

I have attached some pictures below as an example.


Can someone please explain why the issues under the Epic aren't cloning over and how I can fix this?


Thanks in advance!

I confirm that I also have projects with the "Command driven" type. In projects with the "company management" type, everything works now.image.png

Hi @Sophie Bailey 

You can use Clone Plus for Jira Cloud to clone an epic, its issues, and their subtasks with estimates also. 

I'm the product manager for the app. If you have questions or feedback about Clone Plus for Jira, please get in touch with us directly.
