Hi Everyone,

I'm with HeroCoders, makers of Clone Epic Template. I wanted to let you know that the app is being discontinued as of August 4th, 2022. We are recommending Deep Clone. They have graciously offered to provide discounts for Clone Epic Template customers.


Following up on @Piotr Stefaniak _HeroCoders_ response, the epic copy functionality was spun off to a new add-on.

This is from the 'Epic Maps for Jira' page:

A previously available feature – cloning an Epic along with its stories, sub-tasks, and checklists has been deprecated and moved to Clone Epic for Jira.

Epics Map allows cloning an epic with all its children tasks in Jira Cloud

It is a free app that my team released recently. 



This does not seem to work. It just creates a link to the original template...

@Jose Machado, it should clone/duplicate entire Epic tree. Please reach the support at if it doesn't. They will be able to help.


@Jack Hunter _HeroCoders_ Is it possible to maintain rank order of the issues when cloning? When I clone, the task order is not maintained

Hi @Heather Rainey ,

I've responded to you via our support service desk. I hope my reply has reached you, if no - please double check your SPAM folder or ping me here directly.

This is a life saver - and it's FREE.  Thanks!

Hi @Piotr Stefaniak _HeroCoders_ 

I have the same issue (maintaining rank order of the issues when cloning) as Heather, would you please share with me your answer?


Hello @Sebastien ,

There was no sensible answer actually - we've had to patch our application to respect the subtasks order provided by Jira. Currently that Should Work™ for everyone, including you.

Can you contact our support via and describe your case with more details there? One of our support engineers would help you sort this out.


Thank you @Piotr Stefaniak _HeroCoders_ for your quick answer.

Hi @Jose Machado

It's also possible to clone an Epic and all it's issues and Subtasks with our cloud app Deep Clone for Jira.
