How to clone Board and Task without relation


Actually I've one team to implement some systems and we want to work with one project called "Implementation" and create a template board with basics tasks. In this situation I got clone the board and everything appear good, all the tasks is there, but when we move a task from cloned boards to another status, the task is moved to another status in others boards too. So I understand that the task is releated to the project and not the board...
I want to know how to clone the board and tasks how a new task and new board but like a clone. So I can work with Kaban status in a unique board without change other.

In resume what I want is work with Kaban boards like trello software.


Thank you!

Hi @Fabrício_Galdino,  

It's indeed possible to bulk clone issues with Deep Clone for Jira. Thank you @Muhammet_Adel for mentioning it.

It sounds like you've only copied the board but not the issues/tasks on the board, @Fabrício_Galdino Is that possible?

If you're not sure you can simply check the issue/task key (e.g. PM-123), since every issue key needs to be individual. If the same issue key is on two different boards, it's the same issue. That would also explain why the status on both boards updates at the same time.

In order to work with template tasks I recommend to 

1. Create a template project with all template tasks you created. The template board lives in the template project

2. Create a new project everytime you actually need to work with the template tasks

3. Bulk Clone all template tasks from the template project to the NEW project

4. Create a NEW board in the NEW project. And display all cloned issues on the NEW board.

In order to try out the bulk clone function of Deep Clone you can install a free trial at the Atlassian Marketplace and bulk clone multiple issues at once following that instruction:

  1. Search for those issues using the Jira issue search (e.g. on      
  2. Filter for the issues that you want to clone
  3. Start a Bulk Clone by clicking the “Deep Clone: Bulk Clone” button on the top right next to the “share” and “export” menu.

I recommend the following 

  • Multiple components under your project. 
  • Edit issues in bulk to update the component value.
  • Create boards based on filter like (project = {your project} and component = {your component})
  • Bulk Clone tasks
  • Update the component field for the cloned tasks to be as same as used in board filter.

Note :To perform bulk clone tasks you need to have a plugin as this is not out-of-the-box in Jira like Deep Clone or JIRA Command Line Interface.

Hello @Muhammet_Adel  and @Marlene Kegel (codefortynine) !

Thank you for this tips, I'm deeping in this solutions right now. It was what I wanted.
I already thought about create projects templates, but I don't want to input a lot of projects inside Jira list. But It's how the software work's.
I think it's beacause we're acostumated to manage projects in trello.


Best Regards for all!
