Cloning Tests in Zephyr


I am trying to clone tests I have already created as many of the test cases share multiple steps, however, when I clone the test the test steps are not carried across. 

I have managed to do this on a couple of occasions although this is not happening consistently. Is there a setting that needs to be changed in order to do this?


Thanks in advance,

Hi Raksha

I'm Peter, Josh's workmate. He can't respond as he has to wait 24 hours because of some blog rule (as will I after I send this). 

The answer to your question is Yes, we are using Zephyr for JIRA Cloud version.



Hello Josh,

Please confirm are you using Zephyr for JIRA Server/Cloud version? 

Thanks & Regards,

Zephyr Support

From memory I think you need to make sure the the Zephyr Test issue type is associated to the project..

Thanks for the updates Peter.

Please access the below link and confirm whether you have the Clone Link Type 'Cloners'  under Issue Linking page or not ? If not please create a new link type with the proper values specified in the following link.


Thanks & Regards,
