Bulk copy/clone issues from one project to another?

I don't see this as being possible, but what we'd like to do is take a whole set of issues in one project and copy them into another project.

True copy, leave the originals as they were but clones created in the new project.... possible?

JIRA Command Line Interface has the cloneIssues action to clone issues from a JQL search. However, to change the project on the clone, you need the Clone Plus Plugin for JIRA which in NOT available for OnDemand. So, you would have to use getIssueList to get a CSV list and then script adding them to the other project or potentially use the runFromCsv .

you can use structure plugin to do this. Document is here : https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Cloning+Multiple+Issues
