The link given in the answer to this question is broken, and Googling the link's title gives numerous pages like this one in which JIRA Command Line Interface is recommended. However, the documentation states that the
cloneProject action requires the Clone Plus plugin, which is not available on Cloud. I tried it anyway, and running:
jira.sh --server SERVER --user USER --password PASSWORD --action cloneProject --project KEY --toProject NEWKEY --cloneIssues --name 'Clone'
gave the following output:
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 KEY-3 failed. Remote error: Project 'NEWKEY' created with key NEWKEY. 1 issues failed to be cloned. 0 issues cloned to project NEWKEY.
(The error was that the project was created?!?)
A new project named "Clone" with key "NEWKEY" was indeed created, but it contained no issues, and the configuration from the old project (such as the issue type scheme) was not copied over. Trying the command again without the
--cloneIssues flag gave no error, but the empty project that was created still did not have the old one's configuration.
To top it all off, searching for Cloud plugins with the query "clone project" gives no results. Is cloning a project in Cloud currently completely impossible?
Let me deal with each point you raise:
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.
