Hi @Bruna Junckes Sant Anna 

I don't think you can do that with Automation. For this use case what I normally do is keep a csv file with its configurations (field mappings) and import it in new project to quickly populate the issues.


Hi @Bruna Junckes Sant Anna 

As @Ravi Sagar noted, this isn't possible yet.  Here is the suggestion to add a trigger for Project Created to automation, which you may watch/vote for to see progress:

Automations cannot trigger based on project creation, it can only be configured to trigger on issue events. You would have to create something using the REST API to do it, or using an existing app. I found this one in the Marketplace, Deep Clone for Jira, and it looks like it allows you to create a project template that you can clone. 


I'm the product manager of Deep Clone For Jira.

There are several features that might be interesting for your use case, @Bruna Junckes Sant Anna :

It is also possible to integrate Deep Clone with Jira Automation.

If you have questions or feedback about our app, don't hesitate to contact our support.

thanks Marlene!


Wish Jira had something we do not need to pay for an extra license, but that good for now.
