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 don't need a plug-in - you can do this very simply by exporting the project issues into a CSV file and importing them back into another project. It is explained here in the JIRA documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiracloud/importing-data-from-csv-776636762.html

You can attach files to issues created from your CSV file. To do this, specify the URL of your attachment in an Attachments column within your CSV file.
Assignee, Summary, Description, Attachment, Comment firstname.lastname@example.org, "Issue demonstrating the CSV attachment import", "Please check the attached image below.", "https://jira-server:8080/secure/attachment/image-name.png", "01/01/2012 10:10;Admin; This comment works" email@example.com, "CSV attachment import with timestamp,author and filename", "Please check the attached image below.", "01/01/2012 13:10;Admin;image.png;file://image-name.png", "01/01/2012 10:10;Admin; This comment works"
Note that URLs for attachments support the HTTP and HTTPS protocols and can be located anywhere that your Jira Cloud site can access.
Does that work?
Hi, @Doug Varn2 Bulk copy is a feature of JSU which we offer on Server and Data Center.
Here's a link to the documentation page with a step-by-step process: https://confluence-apps.beecom.ch/display/JSU/Bulk+Copy
You can always create a service desk ticket so you could be more guided.
That's possible on Jira cloud with our app Deep Clone for Jira. Our app enables you to clone and move hundreds of issues in one action.
In order to clone a complete project you have to
1. Create the project you want to clone the issues into
2. Filter for all issues you want to clone
3. Execute Deep Clone: Bulk Clone
If you have any questions don't hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi @Grigor_Mihalkov ,
Welcome to the community!
Unfortunately Deep Clone for Jira is only available for Jira cloud.
The comments above might help you since they also refer to server.
Or you try the Marketplace app Bulk Clone Professional. This app is from another Marketplace vendor, so I don't know much about it. But it seems that it's also possible to Bulk Clone issues with this app.
Of course you can also migrate your Jira instance to cloud and use Deep Clone :)
It seems to work now in Jira Server. You might need to be project administrator.
I used this method to clone multiple layer templates into the same project where the templates located and the result is promising.
Well, it might not work to copy to another project, but there's a workaround.
Copy the items first inside the project, then select the newly created items and make a Bulk change/Move. You might need to do it in several steps, because the different layers can't be selected at once.
Let me summarize the method to bulk copy between projects using JIRA Server.
1. Create a filter that filters out the issues you want to copy.
2. Go to the Projects under JIRA Administration. Choose the project where the issues come from.
3. In the Project settings page choose Actions/Bulk copy of issues (in top right corner). Use the filter to collect the issues needed for you.
4. The issues are duplicated (cloned).
5. Open the filter from Issues/Manage filter
6. Modify it adding this: AND created >= '-15m' or similar to filter out only the newly created copies
7. Go to Tools/Bulk change in the right top corner.
8. Choose all items then select Move items
9. Move the cloned items to the target project (you need the necessary user rights in both projects)
I was curious about how can it be done in Cloud. I've created 2 test projects in Jira Cloud and tried the suggested workaround in the article above. It was pretty good.
- I created a filter for the items to be bulk copied from project 1.
- I exported the list of the filter as csv and downloaded it to my disk.
- I went to project 2. In Create I chose Import/Browse files
- Uploaded the saved export file by mapping only the Summary and some other fields I wanted to keep, but not mapping the Issue ID.
I ended up having clones of filtered project 1 items with new IDs in project 2.
So that seem to be the way to clone to other project in Jira Cloud.
I used nextgen projects.
