How do I clone an issue and clone its subtasks?

I would like to clone an issue, and also clone the subtasks which belong to this issue


Now the issue is cloned and linked to subtasks which are already done:

In stead I would like the issue to be cloned and at the same time, subtasks to also be cloned and have a new ID

Hello @Ruth Austin,

You could also try our Jira cloud app Deep Clone for Jira.

It is possible to clone issues and their subtasks at once.

Don't hestitate to get in touch, if you have feedback or questions.



Hi @Ruth Austin

You can use Clone Plus for Jira Cloud to clone subtasks, its estimates, parent versions and the parent reporter while cloning an issue.

In addition to this, the app supports many use cases and workflow requirements with enhanced customized clone actions.

Full disclosure: I'm the product manager for the app.

Let me know if you have any questions!
