How do I copy or duplicate a Jira Task

If you do not have a copy option please create such enhancement.

We have tasks that needs to be repeated every week with some small variations in each task must most is the same.

You can use "clone" from the menu options on an issue.

But for a regular repeated task, it's probably better to write a very short script that uses REST to create a new issue (Pi + Cron + 20 line script, 19 lines of which is poking me on HipChat if the create fails)

There is the functionality built in it is called 'Clone' and it can be found under the 'More' actions on any issue provided the user has create permissions.

However, as you say you have a set of tasks to be repeated every week you may wish to look at one of the scripting plugins to make this easier for you as you could then clone multiple tickets at once and bulk populate with certain parameters.


Hope this helps.
