Cloning epics and it's children tasks

Hi there,

One of our templates on our client's website requires similar Epics and children tasks as part of an upgrade project (each carline needs to be updated to the new templates). As part of the project I would like to be able to clone the epic and it's children and then able to bulk edit (component, version and URLs). How do I do this? I know how to clone an issue but I really need to clone the epic and its links to it's children tasks.

I have attached a screenshot below to show you what exactly I would like to clone and then bulk edit.
