How to clone an Epic in cloud?

I need to clone an Epic with all the task included in thisJira 3.PNG

4 answers

Epics Map also allows cloning an epic with all its children tasks in Jira Cloud. 

It is a free app that we have released recently. 

UPDATE: We have extracted Clone Epic functionality to Clone Epic plugin.

Epics Map becomes now more for a high level overview of the project and epics. 

Wanted to try it, but it only says: "An error occurred and we could not fetch the data." on my jira-cloud installation.

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 :)

I would like to learn to create this basic app.  Please advise.



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.
