There is no such function that allows you to clone the epic and linked issues. I found this feature request, JSWSERVER-7721, and one of the comments mention a workaround were they use the export/import functionality. The app mentioned only works on Server and I could not find one that works in Cloud.

You can create a basic app that reads the Epic and tasks using the API and then create a copy for each one.

Contact me if you need help :)

For Jira cloud we released a Marketplace app called Deep Clone for Jira that enables you to clone Epics and all included tasks and subtasks in one action.
