Clone or copy an entire project in Jira Cloud

Hi I want to clone and ENTIRE project in Jira. Why? Because I want separated projects for iOS and Android. They will be quite similar so any suggestion please?

Hi all ... Anyone found any route to do this? I will look at the Deep Clone add on but would like to try control this internal and possibly do this without an add on - either via the Interface or API? Anyone? Thanks in advance for new updates..

Hi @Yatish Madhav ,

It might be interesting for you that we've released an update of Deep Clone for Jira last week that enables you to clone entire Jira projects, including settings, components, versions and issues.

@Marlene Kegel - codefortynine Can you please share docs for cloning entire projects? specifically classic projects 

Welcome to the community, @Khalid Alahmadi

Sure! Here you can find our documentation about cloning projects.

If you have further questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with our support. We usually reply within one working day.

@Marlene Kegel - codefortynine  thanks for the fast reply. Unfortunately I cant seem to find the clone project button in Jira. Hope you can help in this

@Khalid Alahmadi You trigger a Project Clone via a Bulk Clone.

Here you find the Bulk Clone dialog:


Here you can find more information about how to Bulk Clone.

Here's a video about bulk cloning.

Below you have few possibilities:

1. You can create project using existing configuration from source project (you can choose this option while creating new project). Be aware that in this case changing for example workflow or permission scheme will affect both projects;

2. You can manually copy existing configurations like workflow, permission, boards etc. And then use it in new project.

3. If you want to copy already existing issues, components ,version etc I recommend scriptrunner and it's build-in "copy project"

4. You can also consider to stay with one project but separate Android and iOS tasks using basic jira functions like components or labels

Does the ScriptRunner 'copy project' script work with JIRA Cloud? (Looking for a plug-in solution to this problem).
