How do I copy issues from one project to another project?

Hi, Please find the below scenario:


We have created two projects in JIRA. We have created few issues in one project .

Now ,we want to copy those issues in to another project. Is it possible to copy issues from one project to another project ? If yes , please provide us with the steps.

If there is any plugin for the above scenario for JIRA cloud? Please guide on plugin .

You can't copy to another project. What you can do is to clone the issue inside your source project and then move the cloned issue to a target project.

Jjira doesn't have a plug-in for this that works for Cloud. But you can export the issues you want from one project and import them to another project.

New project -> Issues -> Advanced Search -> Click the 3 dots for more options in the top right corner and then select import issues from CSV

You will then be asked to map the fields you want to import. Your Jira issues, fields, components etc need to match in order for many of these fields to work. Make sure to not map over the issue IDs or keys as you want these to be unqiue to the new project. 

I would recommend practicing this procedure with a test jira project before you potentially contaminate one of your real projects accidently.
