Hi @anuta_lucky

Welcome to the community!

You can use Clone Plus for Jira to bulk clone a number of issues from a project or different projects to the same or different project. This is available for Cloud and DC hosting options. Full disclosure: I'm the product manager for the app. 

If you have questions or feedback about Clone Plus for Jira, please get in touch with us directly.

There is no native Jira function to bulk clone issues. Only to bulk edit, move, transition, delete and watch, but you can use Jira automation to clone issues, if it fits your use case!

Hi Lisa, can we use the bulk clone to clone the subtask inside the issue as well ? thanks!

A little late but could be helpful, nevertheless: You can always export then reimport after removing the Issue key and any other Jira assigned values from the import file (i.e, keeping the fields you added — summary, description, etc)

In my opinion, this is the quickest option and it is extremely versatile.


I am Marlene from codefortynine.

Another option to bulk clone issues would be our Jira cloud app Deep Clone for Jira.

You can start right away after you've installed our app from the Atlassian Marketplace:

  • Filter for the issues you want to bulk clone using the Jira issue search
  • Click on the Deep Clone button on the top right
  • Select the target project and configure you clone
  • Clone


For more details you can read through our documentation, or watch our demo video.

This was the one I was going to suggest.

In my case I just added a loopback transition into my workflow and added a post-function that clones issues. That way you can bulk transition your issues and your issues will be cloned.
