Cloning a project and changing a workflow


IRA Cloud & Company-based projects

I would like to find out if the following is possible:
1. Clone a single project in JIRA with everything (WorkFlows to sub-tasks)
2. Create a new Workflow for the cloned project
3. Link the cloned project to the new WorkFlow


Because our SandBox version is being used to test the JIRA Service Desk migration, I cannot play around there.

I want to create a new workflow for an existing project to test out some things, but I need good data. So I thought of making a copy/backup/clone of the existing project. Setting up the new Workflow and then linking the Copy/Clone project to this new WorkFlow or somehow restoring the backup into the new project

Has someone done something like this or is this possible?

Hello @Wendy Crause ,

How about trying this. Create a project with shared configuration.

create few issues cloned in old project, then bulk move these cloned to new project (as you looking with some good data).

once this done, you can copy the Workflow scheme from new project and apply change of the workflow here to copy of workflow scheme and add the required workflow to it, and assign the work flow scheme to new project.

if any major change in Workflow statuses, you need to map the workflow statuses from old to new for the modified workflow issue type.

I hope this will help you.
