I have a production environment of Jira Service Desk in a virtual machine. I would like to make a test environment.
Can I just clone my production VM and then make relevant settings changes in the new test VM?

Yes, if your home directory is inside VM.
But some users like me prefer mounting separate shared volume (like EBS on AWS) for home directory. This way we don't have to move data from home directory if we decide to switch/upgrade machines. Also, it will make switch to Data Center offering in future much easier.
But this is completely a personal preference.
