Can we clone or copy a project on jira cloud

Hi all,

we are actually trying to clone or copy project which is having basic tasks and dashboards. We would like to use this a base template for all the newly copied projects. Is there a way to clone a project on cloud. I see a lot of answers which includes links but they are directing to the 'page not found'.

Any information would be really helpful.

JIRA Cloud does not have the core functionality to copy entire projects. If this is a must for your company/team, you can consider looking into the JIRA Command Line Interface. This plugin is compatible with JIRA Cloud and using it's cloneProject command.

NOTE: This workaround is not officially supported by Atlassian. You can find the documentation regarding installation and use here.

For Jira Cloud you can use our app Deep Clone for Jira to bulk clone up to 1000 issues at once.

You just have to filter for the issues you want to reuse.




Then you can bulk clone them into the new project.
