We created a new project template in Jira with new Issue types defined , corresponding workflows,permissions and field configurations defined. Eventually we would like all projects to be created using this template in Jira.
But as of now, we have some existing projects in Jira with lots of reporting data that we would like to use the new template as well .
I see two options here
a) Create a new project using the new template as the shared configuration and move all the issues from the existing project into this new template project. When moving the issues , we see that each issue that's being moved gets a new issue id and does not retain the old issue id.
Question : Is there a way that the issue id value remains unchanged after moving?
b)Modify/Enhance the existing project's configuration manually to include the additional config changes that would bring it to the new template format. This way i dont have to move the issues and can use the existing project. This involves considerable manual effort to modify the configuration.
Question: Is there a way that all this config modification of a project can be done programmatically? such as automated scripts?
Question: Are there any other solutions other than this?
