I'm currently doing a lot of playing with workflows/Issue types in our OnDemand Jira instance with Greenhopper, and I'm looking for a way that I can essentially "revert" the project when I'm done playing.
I'm thinking that are various ways to solve the problem, but not sure if any are possible?
1. Backup the individual Project, then restore it.
2. Duplicate the project with all issues.
3. Write an application that uses the API to iterate through issues on one project and then commit them to another.
Has anyone tried to do this and has an idea of how it can be acheived?
Hi Martin, the problem is that as you are in OD version of Jira you have limited options for this. In fact, there's a plugin (Script Runner) that can copy your project, but it does not copy all the issues.
There's a possibility of Importing a Project to the Jira instance but I'm almost sure this is not possible in OD version since it does make some changes on the instance.
Whatever you decide to do remember it's important to do a backup of the instance, in case something goes wrong.
In my opinion, what you have to do it's what I usually do, create a Test Project and Test Issues to try out anything you need. That way it wouldn't affect your real projects.
Hope this helps.
The documentation for the cloneProject command states the JIRA Clone Plus Plugin is required. When we started to buy it, the page stated it isn't supported in the OnDemand version. Am I missing something here? Perhaps we were trying to purchase it in the wrong location. Will you please provide the link that allow me to add it to OD?
Aah, there's one here that I just tested with my OnDemand test instance https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JCLI/Documentation Look for the cloneProject command, and there's available parameters you can use. Hope this works mate.
As you've no doubt inferred, I'm new to Jira. Your patience and assistance is greatly appreciated.
I have run the cloneProject but I'm still having a problem. None of the detail comes across, i.e. description, etc. and the issues do not either. When I added the cloneIssue command to the same command line I received the following error:
java.rmi.RemoteException: This operation requires the Clone-plus plugin be installed on the JIRA server. Remove project and type parameters to use the regular clone operation.
Clone of issue EBI-310 failed.
Could you direct me to an example command line that actually results in the cloning of an entire project including issues, sub-issues, epics, etc?
This is an old thread, but for the sake others that end up here: this is the answer from Bob Swift - basically, if you are using OnDemand, you can't use cloneProject to clone your issues into the cloned project: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/11986753/how-do-i-clone-a-project-on-jira-cloud
For Jira cloud, there is now a marketplace add-on called Deep Clone for Jira that allows to bulk-clone up to 1000 issues at once. You should be able to clone all issues of a project into another project with it.
