While creating issues in Jira, there are a lot of tasks which are similar across multiple projects. So instead of doing copy/paste like a caveman, I want to know if there is a way with which I can clone issues in bulk and move them across the board?

Thanks for your help.

Hi @Meetaksh Sengwa 

Welcome to the community.

This can't be done ootb, this requires a marketplace app.

Options on the marketplace are bulk clone 

Best options in my opinion:

  1. Deep Clone for Jira
  2. Elements Copy & Sync - clone Jira issues
  3. Clone plus for Jira

I would say try them all and see which app fits best in usage and price.

Hello @Meetaksh Sengwa

 

(And thank you @Marc Koppelaar for mentioning us!)

If you're willing to use a third-party application, I can suggest trying our Elements Copy & Sync app that allows you to clone issues with all their content (summary, description, custom fields, comments, attachments, etc.) and their child issues. 

You’ll be able to easily bulk clone your issues to move them across different boards.

 

Don't hesitate to try our app, it's free during 30 days and stays free under 10 users.

Let me know if you have any questions.

 

Kind regards,

Clara
