Create Custom Project Template for Jira Cloud

I would like to create a custom Jira Project template. The goal being that every time I create a project using this template it automatically creates a set of predefined tasks.

I saw a good add-on for Jira Server but sadly no solution was available to Jira Cloud.

Is there any add-ons or ways of achieving this?

Hi Nicholas,

There is no way to create a Custom Template for Jira Cloud, its only available as an unsupported customization in the Server platform and the customizations required are part of the restricted functions in Cloud so workarounds are blocked at the platform level of the application.   

We have the following Feature Request tracking interest in implementation of a customizable template, so make sure to add your vote to track continued interest:


We are currently following a 31 step manual process to create a new process and this is starting with creating the project using "Share settings with an existing project".  Has anyone tried any kind of scripting approach to automate at lease some of these steps?

I think that you can automate lots of things with BobSwift CLI, including project creation. 

We will see same template requests in 2025. ☹️

Agree, now in 2021

I still can't believe that this isn't a feature yet. OCT 2021 and counting. 

I agree with you

Our Jira cloud Deep Clone for Jira might be interesting for some of you.

It's possible to clone entire company-managed projects along with settings, components, versions and issues.

There might be also other useful apps in the Atlassian Marketplace:

If you have questions or feedback about Deep Clone for Jira, don't hesitate to contact us.

maybe thats why its not available yet....
