How to clone project in Jira Software?

How to clone project in Jira Software?

3 answers

If you want to clone a Jira classic / company-managed project, along with issues, components and versions you can try our Jira cloud app Deep Clone for Jira.

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

Hi @Andrew Stone,

Thank you very much for your hint that there was a mistake in my post above. 

I just mixed up "team-managed" and "company-managed" projects. My post is now updated and correct.

Unfortunately, Jira doesn’t offer the necessary interfaces for us to enhance Project Clone for team-managed projects yet.

You can vote and watch for this feature request so Atlassian hopefully fills this gap soon.

We will notify you in this community post, one we're able to offer the project clone for team-managed projects.

Hi @Milan Šalka,

Your requirement can be achieved by using our Jira CLI app. Please refer to the marketplace link to our app here

The answer to your question is "You can clone a project with the below CLI action command".

--action cloneProject --project "COTMU" --toProject "ZJTARGET" --cloneIssues --copyAttachments --copySubtasks

Use cloneProject CLI action and provide values to the required parameters: project, toProject.
For example, here, COTMU is an existing project and ZJTARGET is a newly created project.

The CLI action, Creates a new project as a clone of a base project, and optionally you can copy versions, components, role actors, and issues to a new project.

We have opened a support ticket, to better track your request. However, we couldn't add you as a reporter. Please sign up using this link and share the user name/id. We'll then add you as the reporter and confirm.

Unfortunately there is no built-in function for this.

If the project is a Company-managed (aka "Classic") project, you can use a third-party application, Jira Command Line Interface.

You will likely require a license (full or trial) to use the cloneProject action.
