Cloning cards & their child issues

Brittany Melville October 28, 2022

I know how to clone a card, but how can I clone a card along with all of its child issues? Or is there an easier way to create a template that can be repopulated and reused over time?

Hi Brittany,

Welcome to Atlassian!

To clone the subtasks associated with a story or task you simply need to check the box next to subtasks and then click clone:

If you want to clone epics, or entire projects, you should use a tool like Deep Clone. There are several redundant tasks that I have created templates for. When I need to clone them, I simply clone the epic and all of the stories that belong to it.

Hope this helps!

Hi Aaron, 

That makes perfect sense now. For some reason last week when selecting the 'clone' option, I wasn't getting that second window with the checkboxes to include subtasks. I see it now. 

Also appreciate you sharing the other resource for cloning projects. 

Thanks for your help!

Brittany
