How can I clone a board?

I did not find a way to clone a board in the new Jira. How can I do this?

This is ridiculous. I used to work with copied boards a lot. Now in the new design, there seems to be no way to do this. Is there really no way to do this?

@Thomas Wrobel, we’re you not able to copy via the view all boards and selecting the board of your choice? To get to the view all boards you click on the magnifying glass (search).

Thanks, @Jack Brickey, you're a life saver. I must say, that under the magnifying glass is not the most obvious or intuitive places in my opinion. But now I have found "all boards", everything is fine.

indeed. an example of why I moved to the old UI. I like the new UI in a lot of respects but I miss my menu bar. Part of this is because I was used to it but part because my common tasks are at my finger tips.

I agree, there should also be a "View all boards" from the Project page where the boards are listed as a dropdown in the individual project container boxes towards the top (i.e. the "View all boards" should show up as the last entry in the dropdown). I hunted all over and didn't think to find all board management in the Search context

The new UI is plain sick. How in the world would you expect someone to find that option? :-)

I have recently switched back to the old UI but believe if you go to view all boards page you can click on the elipses to the right of the board you wish to copy.

You can copy a board in JIRA. From the "boards" drop down you can click on "View all boards" and from there when you see the list of boards then you can click on the options available for the board and copy the board.

Thanks for the feedback. It just seems that with the "new" Jira there is no "Boards" drop down anymore.
