We've got a team that has very repetitive work that needs to get accomplished each iteration.
That work is organized in a hierarchical structure (Feature --> Story(ies) --> Task(s)).
We've got templates built out for each level in the hierarchy, but we've not been able to figure out how to copy the whole structure at once when it's time for this body of work to happen again.
Is it possible natively in Jira, or with a plugin/app, to accomplish this?
Thanks for tagging me @G subramanyam !
Hi @Rob Smith, there are lots of great answers already posted by folks who are faster typists than I. :)
I always did what you're after using the .CSV import feature, as @Trudy Claspill suggested. If you use CSV, import as a Jira application admin (not as a Jira user) as the capabilities are more robust in the admin version. Find the admin importer at Admin > System > External system import.
Since you have Jira Cloud, you could also try out the new automation feature. You could create a scheduled rule, that runs every 90 days, and clones existing issues. Try it out in Atlassian's playground environment so you can test it without impacting your real production data. The playground is here: http://atlassian.com/automation
And of course there are more robust solutions available using a marketplace app or the Jira REST API.
Hope this or one of the previous posts below helps!

You could use a CSV import to import the issue information, each time you need to replicate it.
Alternately, there are a few apps in the Marketplace that focus on cloning issues. You'll need to research them to determine which one meets your needs. I have not used any of them myself so cannot speak to the details of their functionality.
