Currently this is not supported by JIRA, here' an open ticket -

You can use a paid plugin to incorporate this feature in your JIRA - 

This is only for self hosted version, not for cloud.

We've been looking for something that will do that as well.  Quite surprised that its not already part of the default JIRA installation to be honest

I'm surprised as well. I'm not sure how other teams are implementing JIRA, but using a customized project template seems essential to these kinds of tools.

Most live with the built in templates and tweak the projects after creation.  For sites regularly creating non-standard projects, you have to take a view on whether the development time is really worth it.  Most of those who really need it create template projects and buy an add-on that can do "copy project"
