Hi, I have a set of epics and I would like to copy the epics in same projects(but different starting date) All I can think of is the choices below.
・Clone epic one by one by using Epic clone App.(so tedious)
・Upgrade Jira into Premium(now Standard) and make Initiatives and copy(by some Apps?)
・make some automation rule to create epics automaticaly.
Do you have any other options?
You could export the existing Epics and related child issues to CSV, modify the date fields, and then import them to create a new set of issues with new dates.
The hierarchy is annotated by the child issues of the Epic having the Epic Link field that identifies the parent epic, and the Sub-tasks having the Parent field identifying the parent issue.
Refer to this document
...specifically the section on "Creating sub-tasks". The principle it describes is the same that you would apply to adding the child issues to the Epic, if you want to import the Epic, child Issues, and sub-tasks all at once. Or, you can import just the epic, get its Issue ID, add that to the Epic Link column for each child issue and import those. Then get the Issue ID for each of the issues that had sub-tasks and add that to the Parent column and import the sub-tasks.

You could set up an Automation. One idea would be to use Labels as a condition. You could add a unique label, e.g. epic-copy then set up an automation To run manually or on a schedule and clone all epics with the label.

Additionally, if you are asking for help with an Automation Rule provide the following information:
1. Describe what you want to happen in your rule. What problem are you trying to solve?
2. Provide screen images of your rule and details of each step.
3. If the rule is not doing what you expect, provide the details from the rule execution Audit Log showing what did happen when the rule ran.
